Thuparama Dagoba, Anuradhapura (2)

The Thuparamaya dagoba is one of the oldest Buddhist monuments in Sri Lanka, perhaps the first built after the introduction of the religion. The building must have impressed Terry Ruff, as he included two pictures of it in his wartime photo album.

Many thanks to Ken Creed for sending us these pictures, which were taken by his wife's uncle Terry Ruff during his time with No.357 Squadron, a special operations unit that operated over Burma, Malaya and Sumatra.
