  • One of the better places that we visited in Sri Lanka. You go to the Museum-you can see how buildings look like in its heyday. A very large area, you need to move the car in August, tuk-tuk, or you can rent a bicycle. Tickets for foreigners, as in Sri Lanka, very expensive. You can use the Guide. In the complex you can buy souvenirs, drink and something to bite.

  • Very nice fairly extensive archaeological site. Possibility to rent bikes to move from one site to another. Personally, we preferred to do drive :-)

  • Be it the ruins of the royal palace, the sanctuary of Lankatilaka Buddhist or the Gal Vihara, these sites are part of what we've seen more interesting in Sri Lanka. Colossal depictions of Buddha are impressive. The very Green Park is nice to travel in the company of many monkeys.
