Arankele is one of the famous old monastery’s you can find in Sri Lanka. Hidden away in the jungle you feel like Indiana Jones exploring old temples. Arankele has some really nice ruins, like the hospital, meditation halls and the big hot water pond in Sri Lanka.
The ruins date back more the 1400 years and they say that the last know Arhat monk, Maliyadeva stayed here with more than 12.000 other monks. Which us amazed us is how they made the stones fit perfectly in the structures.
There are some structures where the purpose is unclear of, like the double platforms with a small bridge between it. Really strange and unique to this place.
