Isurumuniya is one of the granite, marble and stone structures located near Tissa Wewa in Anuradhapura.

The structure of Isurumuniya is a crossover between a temple and a fortress.

Isurumuniya nurtures young minds and leads them along the path of spirituality, wisdom and council. It shelters tourists and serves as an abode that facilitates religious teachings and discipline.

The structure evokes decorum and the carvings on stone are beyond thought provoking.

This divine structure comes to life with internationally acclaimed inscriptions of the Isurumuniya Lovers, Elephant Pond and The Royal Family.
