Sri Lanka - Colombo & Cultural Triangle

The exquisitely preserved ancient city of Polonnaruwa was Sri Lanka’s second capital after Anuradhapura between the 11th & 13th centuries.

The area boasts a selection of well-preserved palaces, royal buildings, and Buddhist shrines 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.
