Don’t miss the ancient Bo Tree, which was originally a branch of the Bo tree in Budda Gaya under which Lord Buddha attained enlightenment and brought to Sri Lanka by Emperor Asoka's daughter, Princess Sangamiita. This is one of the eight great places for Veneration for the buddhist community.These are major attractions for tourists, the eight destinations being Sri Maha Bodhi, Ruwanwelisaya, Thuparamaya, Jetavanaramaya, Abhayagiri Dagaba, Samadhi statue and Isurumuniya.
