Ancient City of Anuradhapura

Sculpture detail from stone wall,Wijerama

 

 

 

An overgrown jungle path takes you to Wijerama, an ancient monastic site lying neglected in the jungle. Sunlight filtering through the trees picks out beautifully carved stone walls, balustrades and steps, pillars and pillar capitals. The site unfortunately has been plundered with artifacts photographed in the 1990s now missing.
