      Dec 16, Colombo: Archaeological researchers of Sri Lanka have discovered the ruins of an ancient hospital, believed to be about 2,000 years old, in Anuradhapura, the historic capital city of North Central Province.

      The ruins of the ancient hospital have been found near the ancient Thuparamaya Dagoba that is believed to have been initially constructed in third century B.C.

      A spa, medical rooms and medical equipment including grinding stones and knives have been recovered so far. A latrine system that is carved in rock has also been identified.

      The Director of the Abhayagiriya Archaeological Project Prof. T.G. Kulathunga said that ruins are similar to the findings of other ancient hospitals in Anuradhapura.

      The Archaeological Department has also commenced excavations of a hospital ground in Anuradhapura Maha Vihara temple near Ruvanwelisaya.
