As the stupas at Anuradhapura are all impressive, Abhayagiri Dagaba is no different! Wonderful, a real sight for the eye.

This stupa has built by King Walagamba, in order to pay his gratitude towards the Buddhist monks. This area is considered to be carrying the secrets of Theravada Buddhism. This stupa has met-up with several disastrous situations in the past, but with the help of government and the fellow Sri Lankans, the stupa rebuilt in several years back. This Vihara area contains with a museum as well, which hinders the history of Abayagiri Stupa.

There’s some scaffolding on parts of this dagoba at the moment, so you’ll need to find the best vantage point from which to photograph it.
The park as a whole is a sprawling complex with ticket checkpoints all over the place. By far the best way to see it all is on a bicycle. We spent an awesome day riding through some beautiful scenery, with monuments peeking through the foliage.
Having done Polunnaruwa earlier in our trip, we found Anaradhapura a little disappointing. If you’re planning your itinerary and are unsure if you need a night or two here, I don’t think you do if you’re taking in the far superior park at Polunnaruwa. It’s all a bit same-same here. The two big dagobas are certainly impressive but the rest of the sites aren’t much to write home about. The “sacred bodhi tree” was a let down. Really just a temple for locals. You see very little of the tree itself.
All in all, a lovely day out cycling through rural Sri Lanka, but the day will not be remembered for the monuments.

Abhayagiri Stupsa was established by King Valagamba during the period of his second reign, from 89-77 BC in his at historic city Anuradhapura in Sri Lanka. Originally over 100m high, it was one of the greatest structures in the ancient world, its scale only matched by the pyramids of Giza (and nearby Jetavanarama). Today, after several reconstructions, Abhayagiri Dagoba soars 75m above the forest floor.

Located in the northern part of the archaelogical site there is this huge dagoba.
The structure in very old and in the past was one of the greatest structure.
Nowadays, even though a little shorter than originally is equally impressive.
There are several very nice bas-reliefs.
Given its dimension it is necessary some time to see it appropriately.

Based on the history, this massive stupa was built in the 1st century BC. It's different than the other usual stupas in Sri Lanka. Highly recommend to visit this place if you travel to Anuradhapura.
