  • Gal Potha or book of stone is a big slab of stone of about 25 tons of weight and, therefore, is difficult to imagine how transported it to the place now. It is very interesting reading of the label that next to the rock that explains you need to understand the inscription on the stone, the longest in the country with its nine meters long. It is located in another area of the archaeological complex known as "The quad", which is not far from the area of the Royal Palace. Only is an elongated stone, but with much history, an archaeological treasure. Greetings to all travelers.

  • This is belived to be an inscription of king Nissanka Malla. Located inside the Dalada Maluwa. Best seen in the morning and evening. 
  • 位于四方庭院内的一个长达九米的巨大石碑,上面刻着古僧伽罗语,所以肯定是看不懂的啦。石书上的文字主要是歌颂国王的光辉往事。 
  • It's a huge stone carved with Scriptures located in the old part of the city of Polonnaruwa, on the side of the quadrangle, where various monuments of great importance are concentrated. It is in the area of payment from the city, whose price is $ 25 per person, or 3300 rupees, expensive but worth.
