Ritigala Monastic Comples and Caves.

Ritigala Monastic Comples and Caves.

In the midst of the jungle lie the ruins of the monastic complex of Ritigala; a lesser known yet astounding Buddhist site, dating back over 2000 years. Here the ascetic monks, the Pansakulikas, made their home, meditated in caves carved out of the mountain.  The site has been declared a Strict Natural Reserve and the Archaeological department has over the years diligently restored the ruins.
