Thuparamaya Dagoba at Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka

Thuparamaya Dagoba at Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka

This wartime picture shows the Thuparamaya, the earliest Bhuddist structure on Sri Lanka, in the sacred city of Anurahapura. The original building is said to be over 2,000 years old, although the current building was restored in 1862.

Many thanks to Ken Creed for sending us these pictures, which were taken by his wife's uncle Terry Ruff during his time with No.357 Squadron, a special operations unit that operated over Burma, Malaya and Sumatra.
