A few kids playing around the giant dagoba in Anuradhapura.
This was the Ruwanweliseya Dagobaa stupa in Sri Lanka, considered a marvel for its architectural qualities and sacred to many Buddhists all over the world. It was built by King Dutugemunu c. 140 B.C., who became lord of all Sri Lanka after a war in which the Chola King Elara, was defeated. It is also known as Mahathupa, Swarnamali Chaitya, Suvarnamali Mahaceti (in Pali) and Rathnamali Dagaba.
This is one of the Solosmasthana (the 16 places of veneration) and the Atamasthana (the 8 places of veneration in the ancient sacred city of Anuradhapura). The stupa is one of the world's tallest monuments, standing at 338 feet (103 m) and with a circumference of 950 ft (290 m). 
One of my favourite parts of taking a Sri Lankan train is that they leave the entrance and exit doors unlocked and open. Sri Lankans and tourists alike, especially in very scenic areas like the hill country, hold on while hanging out the door admiring the view and the wind in their face.
