♫♫ Mihintale Rock (Aradhana Gala) ♫♫

Aradhana Gala,or the Rock of Invitation faces Maha Seya is on a summit of a hill. Even during very windy weather pilgrims do not fail to visit this rock, which has iron railings to help them to climb. This rock is the exact place where Mahinda Thero landed in Sri Lanka and where he spoke the king for the first time.

This is what you can do/say:
"Dear Teresa, love of my life, I know... I always tell you "Let's go on holiday", and I bring you to super cold, freezing, windy, steep, superhot, and humid, desert places. Next time, 5 stars hotel, and you can relax!"

WE LOVE YOU GIRL!!! 
You're our superhero! blue heart
