  • 25 ton and 2,000 letters engraved in Sinhala on this huge parallelepiped stone one wonders how it was placed here! She recounts the exploits of a King of the country. On the sides, a beautiful sculpture in good condition representing elephants and geese.

  • Love to be here
  • 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.
