Most of us have visited archaelogical ruins and known about earlier civilizations but Sri Lanka had, until now, escaped our knowledge. We were overwhelmed by the scope of the ruins at Polonnaruwa.
The Royal Palace once was a seven storey building with 1000 rooms. It is a red brick ruin but initially the building had a thick coating of plaster over it.
I would love to write about all these photos but I don't have the knowledge or the time. Polonnaruwa is one special place.
