Description :

  • Anuradhapura Museum gives an idea on the relics of the past or what Anuradhapura was in earlier times.

  • Anuradhapura's nearness to the south of India influenced the lives of the people in particular and society in general.

  • Many took refuge in the teachings of Lord Buddha but it had a flip side too.

  • Many noted scholars believe that the path of ahimsa made it vulnerable to outside marauders like the Tamil forces of Rajaraja Chola.
