A cornerstone of the cultural triangle, Polonnaruwa is one of the most significant kingdoms in the nation’s history. Reigning supreme in 11th - 12th century AD, its scattered ruins still remain well preserved. The giant statue of Polonnaruwa's greatest king - Sri Parakramabahu, and the vast ‘Sea of Parakrama’ – a 12th century reservoir which he built, are still imposing.
The Menik Vihara, Rankot Vihara, Alahana Pirivena and Jetavana monasteries, the Buddha statues carved from rock at the Gal Vihara complex, the Lankatilaka shrine, the King's Council Chamber and the Lotus Bath are must see attractions.
