Ritigala - රිටිගල

Ritigala: The ruins and rock inscriptions of the Ritigala monastery date back to 1st century BCE. Located 43 km away from the ancient monastic city of Anuradhapura, Ritigala is the highest mountain range in northern Sri Lanka and consists of four peaks at 766 meters above sea level – an elevation higher than Sigiriya, Dambulla and Mihintale.

Fact: Legends abound on Ritigala; according to one, the non-human deity Hanuman, traveled over Ritigala, and, by accident, dropped a chunk off a mountain of the Himalaya range he was carrying from India to Lanka for its medicinal herbs.
