Polonnaruwa, Sri Lanka
Polonnaruwa, once the capital of Sri Lanka is home to plenty of architectural wonders and ruins.
Definitely needing a car or bike to get around this site, be prepared to take loads of pictures to document the historical monuments, statues, and buildings. If you are a tourist, a guide would be helpful, as all you would see are cool-looking structures; if you study Sri Lankan history – or visited the small museum beforehand – you may be able to enjoy all of this without the aid of an escort. Whatever your choice, you will be glad and privileged you walked on soil that holds so much ancient history. Attractions include Royal Palace, Lankatilaka Temple, Polonnaruwa Vatadage and many more.
