The historic city of Anuradhapura is an essential stop on any tour of Sri Lanka. This city, located around 205 kms north of Colombo, is one of eight World Heritage Sites in Sri Lanka and is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. The sacred city of Anuradhapura, most commonly referred to as Sri Lanka’s first ancient capital, was once a major centre of Sri Lankan civilization. The fascinating ancient ruins include huge bell-shaped stupas built of small sun-dried bricks, temples, sculptures, palaces, and ancient drinking-water reservoirs. Abhayagiri Dagoba stupa, Kuttam Pokuna ponds, Jetavanaramaya stupa are just few of the most famous sites which you will be able to visit during this whole-day trip. A private English speaking driver will take you around Anuradhapura’s most visited sites and will get you back just before dinner and relaxing evening at the Resort.
