About The Ruwanwelisaya Dagoba

The Ruwanwelisaya Dagoba is a magnificent Buddhist sacred site in the ancient city of Anuradhapura in Sri Lanka.

Begun during the reign of King Dutugemunu (161BC-137BC), the Ruwanwelisaya Dagoba is a pretty white domed structure, although it is a shadow of its original glory, having suffered damage over the years.
