One of several important Ancient moments at Anuradhapura. Quite striking.

Be sure to dress modestly (no shorts, or bare shoulders for women) to be respectful.

Also required to remove shoes, and be prepared the sand surrounding the dragons can get very hot, and has the occasional sharp stones.

One of the oldest stupas in Sri Lanka, and considered as the first Buddhist stupa with relics of the Lord Buddha. Built by King Dewanampiyathissa, this Stupa situated in the area of Mahamewuna Park. Especially during summer vacation, this area getting crowded as this area is one of the sacred places. You could travel here either by your own vehicle if you know the correct path or by a hired vehicle.
