If you dont have time to go and see the ruined cities in Anuradhapura or Polonnaruwa you may at least go and see what you can see in those places. Also if you wish to see the throne and the crown of the last Sri lankan King dont miss this place. If you are a foreign traveler on a short stay dont miss it. You will like the place for sure. After all it is a magnificiant building too with a large garden to relax.
