A smaller and easier to reach that Ritigala to the north, Arankele is a lovely site in the process of restoration. The wooded paths are nice to stroll along as you view bathing ponds, double foundations for former buildings that seem unique to this site. Very atmospheric and calming.

Arankele Forest Monastery is a haven of peace and quietude. The site was of an ancient forest monastery. Today it is a celebrated archaeological site containing the ruins of the ancient forest monastery. The stone pillars prove the skills of architectures who worked on this site.
