I visited this Statue during my tour to Sri Lanka. For me this is the symbol of Ancient Anuradhapura.

This is another rare find of ancient sculpture. Not very well presented or protected against the elements or vandalism

So sad this ancient statue is damaged and broken. It's in a nice quiet spot. Just another of multiple ancient statues

Great craftsmanship, but having seen so many buddhas in 7 months of travel, it was ok. Located next to the main road.

The place locates in your way to see moon stone and guard stone. I have not seen many visitors in the location due to the less popularity as well as the less publicity. Nevertheless, the statue says history of the ancient kingdom. It appears that the archeological department has not paved an adequate attention to construct a permanent structure.
