Polonnaruwa Holidays & Tours

Polonnaruwa, the island’s medieval capital between the 11th and 13th century, is perhaps the most rewarding of the ancient cities. Flowering principally under three kings over a short period of less than 100 years, it is both historically and geographically compact. The ruins, built alongside a vast and beautiful artificial lake, stand witness to a lavish phase of building, culminating in the sublime Gal Vihara. In its imperial intentions and the brevity of its existence Polonnaruwa may be compared to the great Mughal city of Fatehpur Sikri, near Agra in India. In 1982 it was designated a World Heritage Site.
