Your stay here is worth a visit to once the sacred city of Anuradhapura with historical and archaeological values – quite distinctive to those of Polonnaruwa. Some must-sees are the Sri Maha Bodhi (Sacred Bo-Tree) under which Prince Siddhartha attained to enlightenment over 2,500 years ago and is the oldest historically documented tree in the world, the perfect ‘bubble shape’ Ruwanweli Seya (2nd century BC), the ‘Samadhi’ Buddha statue (4th century AD) encapsulating the deep meditation posture and the Isurumuniya rock temple (3rd century BC) legendary for its rock carvings.
