Polonnaruwa

Polonnaruwa is another of Sri Lanka’s World Heritage sites, and served as the capital for 300 years from 1041 AD after Anaradhapure was captured. It is one of the best preserved of the archaeological sites and spreads out over large area , with the main buildings separated by tropical gardens. 

The carvings here are very ornate and blend Hindu and  Buddhist motifs with  a bit of soft porn – although our guide only whispered the rude ones to me for fear of offending Hani!
