Sri Lanka - DESTINATIONS & HOTELS

Polonnaruwa

The exquisitely preserved ancient city of Polonnaruwa was Sri Lanka’s second capital after Anuradhapura between the 11th & 13th century. The area boasts a selection of well preserved palaces, royal buildings and Buddhist shrines which are grouped in clusters making it easy to explore by foot. The Archaeological Museum is a must visit and houses a fine collection of bronzes and sculptures - many are elaborately carved images of Hindu deities, testifying to the overwhelming Indian influence in the city's culture.
