1. Lokukbanda Tillakaratne - April 17, 2009

Anuradhapura is the oldest city in acient in Sri Lanka and most recent city to have been designed as a 20th century city. The government decided to remove all residences from the old city (sacred city) developed the new city as you see it today under the Anuradhapura Presevation Board project starting from 1940s. That is why you will see the well demarkated roads with strategically placed roud-abouts (traffic circles) and schools.
