Sri Lankan royals used to bathe here, the Kuttam Pokuna, a royal bath in the sacred, ancient city of Anuradhapura located 205 kilometers north of the capital Colombo. Though mostly set in ruins, the place is surrounded by monasteries, while the residential areas are littered with dogs roaming the streets. I know because I almost became dog food while trying to look for my planned hotel which I never found. The tuktuk driver offered his house at a much lesser cost. Of course that could have been a ploy - not finding the hotel - so I'd grab his place but it was a long ride from Mihintale (the birth of Buddhism in Sri Lanka) and I was tired and didn't want to waste more time.
I wanted to soak in at the royal baths only to find out it had been conquered by algae.
This is the Eye in the Sky!
