AESTHETICS WHILE BATHING
sty 2020
Near the Council Chamber are the Royal Baths. A square superimposed on a cross gives the royal swimming pool a unique look. What is striking is the architecture.

Polonnaruwa is all about immersing yourself in the cultural and religious beauty of the past. Kumara Pokuna is a good example.

The Prince Pond
lut 2019 • Znajomi
Perhaps not as grand as the twin Royal Ponds in Anuradhapura but still worth a look down a flight of steps from the Kings Chambers. Yes it may be old an dirty, but just marvel at how it must have been in the King's time and the ornate carvings and the manner in which water was collected and channelled to this pond. All part of the great ancient site of Polonnaruwa and glad our guide took us to this site.

The royal baths are one of the sites to see when you are visiting Polonnaruwa, still in very good condition.

Royal Baths
mar 2018 • Pary
These are quite spectacular baths and have survived exceptionally well. Various carvings to explore and again marvel at the skill of the ancients, who created this grand pleasure centre.

Elegant Ruin
lip 2018 • Znajomi
These were once the royal baths back in the day and they are well enough preserved to see how grand they must have been in tbeir heyday They are beautifully ornate and though from the outside the complex is a high rectangle, the waters inside make the shape if a cross with a lotus flower design in the middle. It has a wonderful detailed moonstone at the entrance and numerous carved lions abound. I agree with other reviews on TripAdvisor that advised hiring a guide. We did and learned more than we ever would have from display boards or books. By a guide I mean we hired one to take us around Polonnaruwa, not just these baths! Anyway, well worth building into any visit to the archaeological complex.

This has to be one of the best parts of this vast site and it is worth time walking to it and around it.

Royal Bath s- still in Great Condition
mar 2018 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
These are the Royal Baths that date back to the 11/12th century and have an unusual design - in that the outside is a square and the inside is a cross!In the centre of the bath is a carved stone lotus flower. there are carved lions round the outside and a neat "moonstone" at the pool entrance.

Attractive popular baths
sty 2018 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
Ignore the green water, you can see from the design and decoration that it would have been a beautiful pool in its time. Be careful where you point your camera or the snake charmer will shout at you to give him money.
