Sri Lanka’s second most ancient kingdom, Polonnaruwa became the capital of Sri Lanka following the destruction of Anuradhapura in 993 AD. It has witnessed many civilizations such as the Cholas who were disciples of Brahmanism and of course the Sinhalese between the 12th and 13th centuries. The city stands as a testament to one of the most astounding urban creations built by King Parakramabahu I. Renowned for its unusual dimensions and connection amongst its building and surroundings, the city is a glorious reminder of a flourishing civilization.
