A World Heritage site and treasure trove of historic relics, the ancient City of Polonnaruwa is among the best planned archaeological sites in Sri Lanka and is not to be missed during your Sri Lankan tour.
Polonnaruwa was declared the first city by King Vijayabahu in the 11th century, replacing Anuradhapurawhich had been left abandoned to the invading armies from India. The city reached its golden age during the reign of King Parakramabahu during the 12th century and much of the grandeur and awe-inspiring monuments erected during this time are still present to this day.
Many of our Sri Lanka tours visit the City of Polonnaruwa, including our 15 Day Group Family Tour of Sri Lanka and Sri Lanka Honeymoon Tour. Plus, we can easily incorporate a visit to Polonnaruwa and other historic Sri Lankan sites during a Tailor-made Sri Lanka Holiday!
