About Polonnaruwa Royal Palace

The Polonnaruwa Royal Palace was the once grand residence of King Parakramabahu (1153-1186).

At its peak, the Polonnaruwa Royal Palace would have been a complex of buildings, some as high as seven storeys. What remains now are a pretty set of ruins, with some walls still standing.

Just south of the main palace, one can see the remains of the king’s audience hall and his bathing pools.
