Two bathing ponds aligned lengthwise exemplifying the artistic achievements in the field of hydraulic engineering in ancient Sri Lanka. They date back to between eight A.D. and Ten A.D.

The twin baths that are not twins. This site makes one recognise the engineering at the time to work the water systems in this way. Impressive

A hydrological piece of engineering in the history of the kingdom of. Anuradhpura. Dress code is relaxed, however please consider this area as religious grounds.

Very close to the main Anuradapura religious places. The value of this place should be taken with the time it was built. Maybe 2300 years back. The structure still remains very solid.

Not really spectacular. You can have a look when you are driving by anyways, but I wouldn't go there just for this...

Not far from roadside and accessible by car. Our guide proved very useful in painting a broad history of the site. One would need a guide or printed information to appreciate the cultural aspects of the site
