  • Take some time to examine the true meanins of the paintings in this place. Cameras are not allowed. Don't try to take pictures in the image house.
  • This place has largest preserved paintings from Polonnaruwa era. Other than this place only other remaining paintings from this era is in Gal Viharaya and it is a little patch. The most famous scenery painted here is named "Sankassa pura wadamaweema" which is a incident fromlord Buddaha's life.
  • One of most historical place in Polonnaruwa
  • Ancient place one must see once
  • Not been preserved well at early stage of discovery. Could be another Sigiriya.
