Stupa

Sri Lanka has the largest Stupa in the world, Jethawanaramaya which is the third biggest manmade gigantic structure in the ancient world. Please note that most of the Pyramids in Egypt are smaller than these stupas. During the excursion to the ancient city of Anuradhapura, you can see a large number of stupas.
