Anuradhapura, once a royal Kingdom in ancient Sri Lanka, today is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are plenty of things to see in this massive region during your vacation.
Jaya Sri Maha Bodhi
Many Anuradhapura hotels including Uga Ulagalla managed by Uga are located closer to the pilgrimage site in the City. Out of all the historical and religious attractions, the main is Jaya Sri Maha Bodhi which is a sapling from the Bo Tree under which the Lord Buddha attained enlightenment.
The Ruwanweliseya Stupa
Be it religiously, architecturally, or historically- Ruwanweliseya Stupa done by King Dutugemnu thousands of years ago, is a marvel! It’s a massive stupa visited and worshipped by thousands of devotees a day.
Isurumuniya is a charming rock temple that dates back to around 267 BC. The adorable stone carving,’the lovers’ is more popular among the travellers than the temple itself.
The Twin Ponds
Ancient Sri Lanka has been blessed with marvellous engineering knowledge and expertise, and the Twin Ponds show you all reasons why it’s so. This is also known as the ‘Kuttam Pokuna’ by the locals.
