  • This attraction is highly recommended in spite of being quite remote from the most visited area of Polonnaruwa. Here we saw a rare Buddha image, since it is curved. The exterior of the building is very special because it is completely carved with large number of curious carvings, and the interior is notable for the frescoes preserved quite well. If there are forces is highly recommended your visit because it is something different from the rest of the ruins of Polonnaruwa. Greetings to all travelers.
