Anuradhapura is a sacred city in Sri Lanka’s North Central Province, located about 120 miles (200 km) north of Sri Lanka’s capital, Colombo .

Situated on the banks of the historic Malvathu Oya, it is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Anuradhapura is one of the ancient capitals of Sri Lanka, famous for its well-preserved ruins of ancient Sri Lankan civilization.

The city remains one of the principal shrines of Buddhism in Sri Lanka. The cutting from the fig tree of Buddha, brought there in the 3rd century BC, has flourished and, today, the Bodhi tree spreads out over the center of the site from a sanctuary near the Brazen Palace.
