ROYAL PALACE - POLONNARUWA

ROYAL PALACE - POLONNARUWA

If you visit the Polonnaruwa Heritage City, this is a never missed attraction on your trip. The Royal Palace of King Parakramabahu (1153-1186) was constructed as seven story building, measuring 31m by 13m. The 3m-thick walls have holes to receive the floor beams for two higher floors, but if there were another four levels, these must have been made of wood. The roof in this main hall, which had 50 rooms in all, was supported by 30 columns. But now remains only parts of 3 floors. This also known as Veijeyanthi Prasada (or Vijayoth Paya- name refer for Palace of god Sakra). According to the Mahawansa, the construction of this place took around seven years and seven months. A historical record says that this has 1000 rooms, but today you can see only ruins of 55. The building is made up with thick brick walls. Still you can see the remaining two arrays of holes, done on the wall to hold the structure of the wooden floor. You have to climb few steps and reach the palace premises. The middle area dedicated for king and its 100 feet in width and length. The Parakramabahu Palace was destroyed by south Indianan invader call "Maga"(1215 -1236), and burned. Still you can see some parts of burned bricks and walls inside.
