Crossing the river

Crossing the River, Sri Lanka

I remember taking this photo from the balcony of my hotel room, could not resist to let this scenery just slowly pass by. Is there any other simpler way to cross the river, well this is definitely one way of cross the river. No sound of engines, no Splashers, no speed, sometimes calm is beautiful.

Undoubtedly my favourite place in Sri Lanka to visit, Standing majestically in the hallowed precincts of the Anuradhapura Sacred City is The Great Swarnamali Stupa, the emblem of sanctity, blessed with the presence of the Buddha and venerated by gods, great kings and Buddhists for over centuries and beyond. It was built by King Dutugemunu in 140 B.C.
