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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Mihintale and Jaya Sri Maha Bodhi. Get a sense of the local culture at Isurumuniya Temple and Ritigala Forest Monastery. There's lots more to do: admire the striking features of Ruwanwelisaya, take an unorthodox tour of Sakwala Chakraya (Star Gate), identify plant and animal life at Wilpattu National Park, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Dagoba of Thuparama.

To find photos, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Anuradhapura online sightseeing planner .
