The ancient capital of Sri Lanka, Anuradhapura boasts of a rich cultural heritage and is home to many historical sites that offer an insight into the country’s past; one such attraction is Lovamahapaya. Travellers to the region in search of Sri Lanka luxury hotels which to base themselves at can consider Ulagalla Resort. This luxurious resort belongs to Uga Escapes which has several Sri Lanka boutique hotels that provide a truly enchanting escape in this island paradise.
When exploring Anuradhapura make sure to pay a visit to Lovamahapaya which can be found between two other famous attractions; Sri Mahabodiya and Ruvanveliseya. Once referred to as the “Brazen Palace” since its roof was covered in bronze, Lovamahapaya was originally a huge structure spanning nine stories and reaching to a height of around 150 feet. While there is a small Chapter House here as well, the main highlight of what remains of this impressive structure is the countless stone pillars that have stood the test of time.
