"Our experience with Remote Lands was most positive - from the planning to the trip itself."

Anuradhapura

Located in central Sri Lanka, Anuradhapura was first settled during the Iron Age. Centuries later, it became one of the first, formally planned cities in the world, featuring palaces, worship grounds, cemeteries, monasteries, and water tanks - comprising the most intricate, well-designed irrigation system of the time.

Today, because of its outstanding architecture and rich, ornate ruins, Anuradhapura is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Particular standouts include brick, domed structures called dagobas, which served as repositories of Buddhist relics; myriad, ornate monasteries dating back to the first kings of the area; and pokunas, the highly complex water tanks which were crucial to the survival of the city.
