Create a fully customized
day-by-day itinerary for free
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. While most sightseeing in Anuradhapura concerns archeological sites and exquisite stonemasonry, you can also combine the history trip with exploration of new town's shops and major department store. See the world's oldest historically authenticated tree, a 2,000-year-old bodhi, under which thousands of devotees place offerings. Take a hike or a bike ride in one of the three ancient water tanks--proof of a highly advanced civilization--or visit an archeology and folk museum. Anuradhapura is in North Central Province. With the Inspirock world travel planner, Anuradhapura and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.
