An expansive complex of architectural and archaeological treasures, Anuradhapura has a magic all of its own. The city prospered for over 1,300 years and was the hub of the golden age of Sinhalese culture – at its peak it was one of the world’s greatest monastic cities with thousands of Buddhist monks living and worshipping here. Abandoned in 993, the ruins aren’t as well preserved as Polonnaruwa but there is an added vibrancy in the fact that some structures are still used for worship and pilgrimage.
