'The embrace', Haththakucci, Sri Lanka.

'Haththakucci' is an ancient monastery complex close to Anuradhapura. It is a collection of large stones situated next to a water reservoir. A group of monks had made this their abode here and there are abandoned cave like dwellings. It is situated on an arid plain where there is a breeze which is a welcome relief. I saw this tree growing on a rock. Its roots seem to embrace the rock and go down to the soil to receive sustenance. It was a sight for contemplation.
