While the stupa is monumental, one of the best parts of Anuradapura was wandering in the very extensive area covered by these ancient monastery ruins, still not widely recovered and restored from the overgrowth. It's got a great atmosphere for those who like to explore and imagine they are one of the first to discover this site. The moonstones are beautiful and not hard to find. Check out the big pools as well and have a good wander around the fallen down monastery residences that stretch out through the woods.
