  • Lotus Pond is a lot away from the main building. If someone travels on foot let him forgive. We were going on and was a piece. Same place, nothing special. You can skip. In the ticket price.

  • I got to see this particular fountain in the shape of a Lotus Flower. I liked, say that in Polonnaruwa much more and better things to visit, though still part of the history of this town!

  • An artificial pond in the shape of a Lotus Flower. Something else, but really only a very short detour worth.

  • One of the magnificent creation of ancient SriLankan artists. History of this place dated back to Parakramabahu the great era. Believed to be attached to Jethawanarama monastery. However according to the mahawamsa there were eight ponds built similar to this one and the ruins scattered along the vicinity support this information.
  • A long trek but it's a lovely construction. Shame it doesn't have water so can't see the full effect. A bit more run down in comparison with the rest of the complex. Take a bike, it's a nice ride.
  • A nice little design although nothing special. It's not worth visiting by itself but it's on the way to Thivanka Image house which is worth visiting so you may as well have a look.
  • Lovely creation there has been 8 originally but only one is left for us to witness that creativity
  • Pretty, but small and a bit far off from the main ruins. Still worth cycling here for a quick view.
