  • The Samadhi Statue is another attraction that is located in the interior of the complex from the ruins of the city of Antigua in Anuradhapura which has been declared world heritage by Unesco. This archaeological site Anuradhapura attracts many tourists and therefore take advantage to collect an excessive access price, as in Polonnaruwa. To gain access to this attraction and all that can be seen inside the complex, each foreign visitor must pay 3550 rupees. I think it is lot of money taking into account the standard of living of the country, but that certainly it is not the excuse to spend long. Samadhi statue is located in the Park Mahamevnawa and is very visited by the faithful who take their offerings to be left in place. This Buddha sitting in meditation position is carved in granite and very well preserved, considering that it is a work of the 4TH century. Worth a browse to the place where the statue stands to contemplate this work noted for devotion to causes. Greetings to other greetings.

  • The statue is beautiful and is part of a complex of 4 statues oriented according to the cardinal points (unfortunately the remaining 3 were destroyed). The place is very impressive. Remember this is a big offense taking photos with your back to the statue, as well as wearing the hat.
