Steeped in history and dating back to 377 BC, the Sacred City of Anuradhapura was Sri Lanka’s first established kingdom. A UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Cultural Triangle, there’s much to discover when exploring Anuradhapura; attractions range from stunning temples to archaeological treasures each with their own story to tell. Located within easy reach of properties the likes of Ulagalla by Uga Escapes, this historic complex in Anuradhapura is home to key sites worth visiting; they include the Jaya Sri Maha Bodhi, a sacred fig tree revered by Buddhists, the stunning Abhayagiri Dagoba and the Isurumuniya Rock Temple with its intricate carvings.
