Sri Lanka’s first city is a sprawling site of archaeological gems dating back to the 6h century BC. Enormous Dagobas reach up to the sky, their domes brilliantly white against the perfect blue skies, while monks in bright orange robes wander through the ruins. Unlike many ancient sites, this one feels alive, with colourful ceremonies and monkeys playfully unaware of its religious significance.
Explore these sacred temples, ancient relics and stepped bathing pools. Discover the Sri Maha Bodhi Tree, grown from a cutting of the Indian tree beneath which Buddha found Enlightenment and marvel at the extensive remains of this ancient civilisation.
