Ruwanwelisaya, Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka - fIMG_9184

If you didn't know already, this is considered _the_ stupa, and that's not for its physical dimensions. Read the story here:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruwanwelisaya

 

Did you know?: The circumference of this stupa is slightly greater than the elevation of the top floor of Melbourne's tallest building (The Eureka Tower).

 

See this monument from the satellite view on Google Maps.

 

And no... I don't know any of those people in the shot :)
