Shot from the top of Gopala Pabbatha, Polonnaruwa, Sri Lanka. It is a small cave monastery and also marks the southern boundary of Alahana Pirivena and lies on the north of Rankoth Vehera. Between the trees you can see the walls of part of the huge monastery that was built much later at the pinnacle of the city of Polonnaruwa's power. Muthugala in Polonnaruwa is an enchanting location set amidst rocky outcrops and willus and houses the remains of a forest monastery inclusive of ruined stupas and drip ledged caves for the meditation of monks. This is a hardly known site and came to our light during a recently concluded archaeological survey of the Polonnaruwa District.

  Alahana Pirivena A Monastic university complex extending over more than eighty hectares erected by King Parakramabahu I in the 12th Century. Galpotha (The Stone-book) A huge stone inscription of King Nissankamalla (12th Century) on a granite block measuring 8 metres in length. Kings ruled the central plains of Sri Lanka from Polonnaruwa years ago, when it was a thriving commercial and religious centre. The glories of that age can be found in the archaeological treasures that still give a pretty good idea of how the city looked in its heyday.
