It's not as big as some other temples but beautiful nonetheless and I believe the oldest in Anuradhapura. The small ruined temple to the right has some lovely carvings at the steps and a beautifully preserved moonstone. Nice to wander around for a few mins

This is supposed to be the oldest Dageba in Sri Lanka, which was built by king Devanam piyatissa . A must visit for those who explore history of Sri Lanka.
