The ancient Magul Uyana (Royal Gardens) are situated close to Isurumuni Vihara and Tissawewa in the ancient sacred city of Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka. In it are various ponds, and the remains of small buildings. According to legend it is believed that Prince Saliya met Asokamala in this garden.

History[edit]

Royal gardens were first constructed here in the time of King Tissa (3d century BC), when the reservoir was built. However, the pleasure pavilions and other fixtures seen today date from the 8th - 9th centuries AD.
