The ancient first capital city. Anuradhapura flourished as a center of political power, and created a unique culture in South Asia from 400 BC to 1100 AC that was known as far as the Mediterranean Civilizations. As you walk through this sacred city of Buddhism with its monasteries, temples, dagabas and palaces you will notice a very intricate but refined style of art and architecture that probably evolved with the influence of the gentle doctrine of Buddhism and the inspiring beauty of the land itself.
