Anuradhapura

Explore Anuradhapura and experience its great mix of attractions.

The population of this area of Sri Lanka is approximately 61,000.

Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte, the national capital, is 100 miles south of Anuradhapura, while Mankadawala is 6 miles to the north.

Nature lovers often head to Basawakkulama and Aradhana Gala to enjoy a fine day.

Set aside a day or two to explore some of the favored cultural institutions in the area. Enjoy the cool and quiet interior as you check out the displays at the Abhayagiri Museum and the Anuradhapura Folk Museum. The Anuradhapura Archaeological Museum and Jetawanaramaya Museum are also well worth a visit.

To find out more about the area's rich and colorful past, plan to visit its historic monuments and buildings. Start the local history tour at Mahasena's Palace or the Samadhi Buddha. When it comes to days of old, the stories are countless. Ratna Prasada and Royal Palace of King Vijayabahu I are also great places to check out.

Discover the most influential people of bygone days at Brazen Palace, one of the area's most stately residences.

The area's spiritual side is evidenced at the Ruwanwelisaya and the Thuparamaya. The Sri Maha Bodhi and the Jetavanaramaya are two more interesting religious sites.

A site of reflection that serves as a reminder of this place's history, Nuwara Wewa is always worth visiting.
