  • The importance of water is highlighted when you look at this structure. Amazing how you get a peek into the cultural & religious views of those times!  more »
  • Interesting structure and I had to see it. The place looks like an amphitheater, and maybe you can sit there for 5mins. Not too far from the main road and easy to find.  more »

  • Nicely carved and very romantic structure. One can imagine how would it look like completely filled with water on full moon night; reflecting moon image.
  • This is a pond made in the shape of a lotus using slabs cut from stone. Thought to be built by king Parakramabahu (1153-1186)
