Batticaloa, we were passing Polonnaruwa. Since the two of us had made our last visit to see the ruins when were were kids, we wanted to go and spend a little time. For him, it was to click a few nice pictures. For me, just to refresh the memory of my last visit with the family.
From the last time we visited, about 10, 12 years ago, a lot has changed! The museum at the entrance looks much better from what I remembered. Well built road directions, bicycles for rent to tour around the ancient city and many other facilities were available. Out of all the monuments around the area, we visited only a few as it was crowded due to the Poya holiday, and also we wanted to get to Colombo by the evening.
Here are a few snaps from the little time we spent.
