 After Breakfast proceed to Mihinthale to visit the ancient ruins. Later Check-in & relax at the hotel. 

 Mihintale & Ancient Hospital (Weda Sala)

 ‘Mihintale’ is a mountain peak situated 12 km away from the famous City of Anuradhapura. According to legend, Mihintale is revered as the birthplace of Buddhism in Sri Lanka. The path to Mihintale rock is through wide stone steps and the area is surrounded by dense jungle. There is abundance of ancient stone architecture surrounding the many stupas, monastic complexes and other sacred shrines. The sacred precinct features the unforgettable sequence of beautiful shrines, stupas and caves strung out across wooded hills. Some of these include ‘Kantaka Cetiya’, ‘Ambasthala Dagoba (Mango Tree Stupa)’, ‘Mihindu Guha (Mahinda’s Bed)’, ‘Vejja Sala (Hospital)’, and ‘Kaludiya Pokuna (Pond of Black Water)’.It was reported by Chinese Mahayana Buddhist priest “Fa- Hsien” who visited the cave in the 5th century that Mihinthalawa was home to over 2000 Buddhist monks at that time. To support that number of monks, Mihintalawa should have been a complete monastery with all facilities for the resident monks. The complete Veda Sala or the hospital complex is one of these support facilities which can be still seen today.The ruins of the present hospital is attributed to King Sena II (853-887 AD). But it is believed that there was a hospital at Mihintale long before this building. The inner Chamber of the hospital is centered around a Buddha Shrine. Around it are the rooms for the patients. Each room entrance face the shrine and is about 10×10 feet in size. The corners have larger rooms and the medicinal trough is on the North-Eastern eastern room. The southern side of the building is the outer court which contain the hot water and steam bath, a clinic, a medicine stores, the refectory and a grinding stone for grinding medicine

Polonnaruwa

To the east of the Cultural Triangle, following the Anuradhapura era is the second ancient capital of Sri Lanka, ‘Polonnaruwa.’ This ancient city is adorned with the remnants of the glorious kingdom of the Great King Parakramabahu I. The ruins stand on the east shore of a large artificial lake, the ‘Topa Wewa’ , or ‘Parakrama Samudra’ (the Sea of Parakrama), created by King Parakramabahu I, who was quoted as saying that "not even a drop of water from the rain must flow into the ocean without being made useful to mankind".

Another draw for tourists is the city's population of ‘toque macaques’. The monkeys have been living in the ruins since human occupation and continued to thrive here long after it was void of humans. Polannaruwa has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO
