Explore the well-preserved ruins of an ancient Sri Lankan civilization and its former capital at Anuradhapura, a World Heritage Site and erstwhile center of Theravada Buddhism set amidst peaceful green parks.
Kick off your visit on the 1st (Mon): don't miss a visit to Isurumuniya Temple, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Jaya Sri Maha Bodhi, then admire the striking features of Ruwanwelisaya, and finally make a trip to Mihintale. Here are some ideas for day two: make a trip to Jethawanaramaya Dagoba and then look for all kinds of wild species at Wilpattu National Park.
