A must go to in Sri Lanka is the ancient city of Anuradhapura.
Dating back over 2500 years this Ancient city is full of the remenence of the great hydro civilisation that thrived there. You could spend hours walking or cycling through some of ancient sri Lankas most magnificent structures and places of both great historic and religious significance. Anuradhapura also known to the locals as the land of the great kings is home to the 3rd tallest ancient world structure. The area is scattered with mega stupas and huge man made lakes.
