TripAdvisor Reviews Tissawewa Resthouse Anuradhapura
Travel Blogs from Anuradhapura
... going to temples etc... The temples and stupas visited today also required the removal of hats... In colder temperatures, removing shoes and hats is no biggy... With temperatures in the mid 30's and humidity 85%...Kind of a big deal after the 4th temple/ stupa visit.

way up our guide Tikiri explained the importance of the ruins - a large
hospital, a monks’ refectory and relic house, assembly hall, temples and
dagoba.I’m not usually big on having a pool at the hotel when I
travel, but in Sri Lanka most hotels we stayed at had pools. They were very
useful in the heat, especially upon return from Anuradhapura and Mihintale.
