Qué vas a hacer

Anuradhapura old town is one of the most important places in Sri Lanka. The history of the past capital starts around 500 CE. In this time it was one of the greatest centers of Buddhism and one of the biggest ancient towns in Asia with an area bigger than 1 km squared. Almost all of the monuments are in a beautiful park. So it is definitely worth to see it :).

Visiting Anuradhapura could take even a few days to see all of the monuments but I will try to show you the most important monuments in one day.

We will meet close to Mirisawetiya Stupa (sacred city) or we can choose the place based on your need.

-You can choose to do a walking tour or rent bicycles (4 USD each) or if you have your own vehicle I can join you
-We will go through many important monuments such as Sacred Bo Tree, Ruwanweliseya stupa, Isurumuniya temple and more -these monuments are included the price except for Isurumuniya temple. (200 Rp)
-Lastly, we can visit souvenir shops and spice market

If you want, your experience can be even deeper. In my garden in villige of Talawa (coutryside) I have built the small house, where I accommodate travelers searching for unforgettable experience with the real Sri Lankan life.

My name is Heenkenda and I am a local of Talawa, Sri Lanka who worked in a hotel in Anuradhapura for 16 years and I have spent the past three years as an English teacher in my village just 12 km from Anuradhapura. I am fluent in English and enjoy meeting people from all over the world. I am passionate about helping the less fortunate children in my village and offer them free English lessons. I also enjoy sharing my culture and country with foreigners and I want to give them a good tour of Anuradhapura and its rich history.

We had a brilliant day with Gunarathna. He was very friendly, gentle and polite right from the outset, even though we were late because of unexpected road closures during a festival day. Gunarathna was very knowledgeable about the sites we visited and chatted with us openly about his culture and thoughts on modern buddhism. He also brought along some tasty local foods for lunch for us to try which was a really nice and welcome touch. 100% recommend!

Gunarathna is a great guide and really enriched our experience in Anuradhapura. We learned a lot about Buddhism and culture there, and the snacks he brought for us were delicious! If you are in the area, I strongly recommend booking this experience.

LOVED this experience. Truly a highlight in Sri Lanka for me, the best part of this is getting true context of the sites your seeing and their importance more so than you’d get visiting yourself. The best bit is Guna who is so informative and friendly. Instantly made friends and gave such a great tour. Please do go on this tour - you’ll get so much more from what your seeing! Enjoy

Gunarathna was our guide on our Anuradhapura bicycle tour. He is excellent in terms of his knowledge about history of Buddhism, teachings of Buddha, and places to visit in Anuradhapura. His English is good. He is very personable and friendly. He communicated well even before we met. He was very punctual, polite and very well presented. He took us through many important monuments, and gave us relevant stories. They were just the right amount, for someone who was visiting the ancient city for first time. I found the tour fascinating. All credit to Guna. I would recommend this tour highly. ps: He also gave some tasty snacks to eat half way through- very delicious Vada, samosa, and string hoppers with sweet coconut inside!!

I really enjoyed the informative and authentical tour with Gunarathna. He gave me also -beside the historical- background information about the peoples life in Sri Lanka. Based on the fact i was alone with him on the tour, we did it by motorcycle which i really appreciated. We visited the most impressive and panaroma spots which i‘d never found by myself without background knowledge.

We had an amazing day in Anuradhapura. We could never have visited all those places on our own. The guide has a lot of knowledge about history and religion. He speaks English fluently. I would definitely recommend this experience.
