  • Standing on its own and happily complete this statue is well worth a view. There seems to be some debate as to whether this statue represents a King or a Sage but I guess we'll never know for sure  more »
  • Before you visit the ruins you come first this statue. Nice to see how the rocks is minced. Not very far walk from the road.

  • Small park located south of the Polonnaruwa Museum-like place. It was a relaxed atmosphere in the Park is a little away from the ruins of the other place, but had a souvenir shop in the parking lot and a lot of trees. Stand picture cut out a big rock, was built here, looks like Europe, felt totally different and other Buddha images.
