  • The image house Thivanka is really one of my favorites of the site. It's true that this ruin, completely in the North to about 3km from the main entrance to be earned, even by bike (some climbs are difficult), is worth, but it's worth it! It is one of the only remains in which we can enter, the paintings on the walls very well preserved, the impressive statue and the building in him even very work and very beautiful. Attention to the many sped inside in the hallway leading to the statue.

  • Beautiful temple with faded interior paintings, a bit further away from the rest, no photography allowed inside.  more »
  • You must experience it. Loved the art work on walls. Outside is amazing when sun is setting. I enjoyed the stillness.  more »

  • Only place in Polonnaruwa to see ancient frescoses stll remaining after nearly 800years.The statue has three bending hence the name implise as Thri Wanka Pilima ge
  • Not been preserved well at early stage of discovery. Could be another Sigiriya.
  • This image house was built by king Parakramabahu.
  • It's a pity that it is forbidden to take photos inside.
  • Grate creation!
