Ancient City of Anuradhapura

Silhouettes of Ruvanvelisaya and Jetavanarama stupas rise above the forest fringe. Tissawewa in the foreground.



Anuradhapura is an ancient city of stupas and palaces where the kings and people of yore enacted the daily rituals of life. Those selfsame rituals are enacted today. The people of modern day Anuradhapura rise with the sun, walk to the tank to bathe and wash clothes. Take a tray of flowers to place at the alter of Ruvanvelisaya before proceeding to work.
