On our way back from the 2 day trip in 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.
