The Gem Sanctity, Ruwanweliseya

Ruwanweli Maha Seya (The Great Swarnamali Stupa), Anuradapura, Sri Lanka

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.
