Mahamevnawa Dhammachethiya Buddhist Monastery Anuradhapura is in a quiet area just minutes from some of the most ancient sites in the city. The monks can even tell you all about the area's sacred sites and Buddhism in this World Heritage city.

Th Monastery itself, is serene and Peaceful. In 2016, during our visit to Sri Lanka, we wanted to distribute school supplies to children in Anuradhapura. The monks helped us find a school and guided us throughout the event.

I visited the monastery with my wife in 2016. We needed some guidance to venerate the Great Stupa - The Ruwanweli Maha Seya. The monks at the monastery helped us to make our visit successful.
