Travel Tips for Anuradhapura

Buddhist guide.

by euzkadi

The first day i used a guide to visit the complex, i had some good conversations with him; he was studiying tourism and was a Buddhist monk, he gave me some interesting opinions about Buddhism and Sri Lanka, he also showed me the main interesting spots in the site. The next day i wandered throught the ruins by myself with a bicycle.

JETAVANA MONASTERY: Dagoba

by hydronetta

Jetavana monastery was founded on the 3rd century AD on the grounds where Mahinda once preached and later cremated. It is a more recent building in the history of Anuradhapura, that was raised due to controversies between the king and monks from existing Mahavihara monastery.
The enormous red-brick dagoba standing on a raised platform, is the centerpiece of Jetavana monastery. At its time of construction was the 3rd highest building in the world, reaching 120m height. But while nowadays modern skyscrapers surpass it, the dagoba is still the biggest stupa and the biggest brick-made structure.
Today restoration is still being made to the top portion.

Bo (Bodhi) Tree - the oldest tree in the world

by tommix

Jaya Sri Maha Bodhiya is the most sacred place in the city, visited by the thousends of Buddhist pilgrims from whole the world (most of them in may/june). It's supposed to be a branch of the Most Sacred Sri Maha Bodhia (the tree under which Buddha was sitting when recived the illumination). This branch was brought to Sri Lanka by Arahat Theri Sangaralitta, the daughter of Dharmasoka, Emperor of India, in 268 BC. Then branch was planted in the gardens of Anuradhapura by King Devanampiyatssa. After more then 2200 years the tree is still there and is considered as the oldest tree in the world.
You have to take off your shoes to visit the permises, and entry ticket costs 100 Rps.

The place is guarded by heavly armed soldiers, and the security measures are tight - in 1985 a Tamil suicide bomber killed here 45 pilgrims.

Kuttan-Pokuna

by jungles

These so-called twin ponds were built in the 8th and 9th centuries as ritual baths and were probably used by the monastery or university nearby. They are not really twins as one is about ten metres longer than the other. The attractive stone enclosures with steps leading down to the water are in a peaceful, lush setting.

Samadhi Buddha

by jungles

This serene sitting Buddha statue was sculpted in the fourth century AD and is quite well-preserved considering its age. People used to say that the expression on his face changed as the sunlight moved across it, but it is now sheltered under a roof to protect it from the weather. There are plenty of scattered ruins in the verdant countryside nearby.
