“Extraordinary”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

The size, scope and longevity of a living tree is extraordinary ... makes one think differently about nature and living organisms. Thought provoking.

“Ancient City of Anuradhapura”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

The Historical City of Anuradhapura is the Mother of Culture in Sri Lanka. Buddihism was brought into Sri Lanka through this city. There are numerous Stuphas (Buddist Templates), with each of them in a Unique Fashioned and styled. Some examples are Largest Stupha, Chilli Stupha, Bodhi Tree, Cave Stupha and many more. Relatively Calm and peaceful city, with pronounced Military presence.

“Holy atmosphere”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

We love the holy atmosphere and the temple monkeys there.But feel a bit like invaders,because there were a lot of local people worshipping.We didn`t pay any entrance fee,i think it`s free of entrance fee.At the most places the Sri Lankan departments take pretty high prices from tourists.But there nobody controls tickets.Inside on the yard there was a ticket-counter,but the guy was sleeping with his head on the table.

“A tree and a statue”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

That is exactly what it is. A tree and a statue. Historical, of course. The tree has fallen down due to age. There is nothing else to see apart from the status. May be a 15 min stopover.
