Stupas, ancient ruins and temple dogs

We visited our Sinhala friend whom we met during our Peace Corps service. She showed us around Anuradhapura’s archeological sites and then we enjoyed a delicious supper with her nice family!

This stupa may have lost its top during the 29-year civil war with the Tamil Tigers. There is usually a crest gem at the very top; I’m guessing that whoever shot off the spire did so to get the crest gem.

Please share with your friends!
