Polonnaruwa

The second most ancient kingdom of Sri Lanka, declared as the capital city in 1070 in order to reunite the country once more under a local leader, now named as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Polonnaruwa’s glory days remains far into the ancient world, yet the legends and the history never seems to fully rest. With the new construction project known as “Awakening of Polonnaruwa” the city would be given the same importance and prestige as it once owned for many years filled with rich culture, leadership, religious and political importance and most importantly the artistic and equally genius creations giving the city an air of a museum. To this day the city is always filled with visitors, as anyone’s willing to sacrifice the five hour drive from Colombo to Polonnaruwa, to admire and be awed by the technology our ancestors used even with the most basic technological advancements at the time, it is truly amazing how these creations, though now all of them ruins still seems to stand tall and strong, despite everything it had gone through the years.
