Anuradhapura is a huge ancient city which ruled over Sri Lanka over thousands of years. Today many of its temples still host religious ceremonies and it is home to many, many monkeys!
These were the finest bathing tanks in Anuradhapura. Look at the sides of the pools, there are steps down for the monks that lived nearby.
In front of many of the ancient buildings you can see these ornate stone door mats. They varied from place to place and over time but were generally a sign of welcome.
Possibly my favourite Dagoba because of the hundreds of elephants! The originals date from 140BC!
