Polonnaruwa

Polonnaruwa situated in the North Central Province is 206 km from the Bandaranaike International Airport. This once flourishing empire, the second most ancient kingdom in Sri Lanka (11th – 13th century) is today recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage site that holds the treasures of a glorious past. Renowned as one of the best designed archeological sites, one can witness Great Stupas, ancient Buddhist temples, gigantic statues carved out of rock, monasteries, palaces and the most remarkable of all, the grand Parakrama Samudra or the Sea of King Parakrama; one massive reservoir made up of three smaller reservoirs recognized as one of the greatest irrigational fetes of its time. Some sights not to be missed are the remains of the Royal Palace, Audience Hall, Lankatilaka Viharaya, The Vatadage, Lata Madapaya, and The Gal Viharaya with its giant statues, the Rankoth Vihara and Kiri Vehera amongst many more.
