    ... that the stonework didn't fit that well.

    The dagobas (stupas) are impressive, these would have been incredibly tall buildings in their time. The are filled with earth so you can't go in and surrounded by small image houses many of which contain images of Buddha. Many Sri Lankans make a trip to the ancient cities and sites of religious significance so we have been warned not to ear shoes or hats around any of the buildings ...
