Polonnaruwa Things to Do: 90 reviews and 172 photos

If you are visiting the Cultural Triangle, you just GOT TO visit Polonnaruwa. The medival capital has quite a lot more than just a few ruined castles and stone-aged temples. The rock temple - or better known as the Gal Vohara Complex, with its multitude of statues carved out of the living rock is fascinating. Despite the fact that it is basically my job as a Travel Agent to promote wonderful places like this to visitors, I strongly recommend visiting Polonnaruwa, anyday, to anybody. If you are at least a little exited about getting off the standard beaten track, hop on a bicycle and take a tour of this medieval city. It's breathtaking...!!! (Literally..!) Looking at an age-old map of this ancient city, you will no doubt begin to fathom the architectural sense of the city and its culture.
