Inurumuni Vihara is a small monastery in Anuradhapura.
|Inurumuni is known for it's carved artwork. This large elephant portrait looks particularly contemporary|
|The Vihara is dominated by a granite outcrop. Here a small garden has been planted between two boulders.|
|Stairs wind their way up to the top of the boulder and a stupa. Some of the rocks are precariously positioned.|
|A stick has been placed to make it look as if it is holding up the boulders in the previous picture.|
For our last stop of the day, we went to tranquil and rarely-visited Kaludiya Pokuna (literally "blackwater reservoir").
|The pokuna is nestled between several mountains. There are a number of ruins in a very peaceful setting.|
|Frangipani ("champas") flowers in crevices in a boulder.|
|Turtles were basking on a rock near the shore.|
|This monkey looks like he has a toupee worthy of The Donald (Trump).|
