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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Sigiriya (Sigiriya & Pidurangala Rock) and Minneriya National Park (in Habarana). There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Mihintale, take in the spiritual surroundings of Mahamevnawa Dhammachethiya Buddhist Monastery Anuradhapura, admire the striking features of Ruwanwelisaya, and explore the ancient world of Moonstone or Sandakada pahana.

To find ratings, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Anuradhapura trip builder website .

Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
