Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I'm talking about the whole temple and shrine complex in Polonaruwa. If you like history and culture, this is your place.
At first you must buy the tickets in the museum, then you can explore the whole town. Be prepared to remove your shoes from time to time.

My Favorite place in Polonnaruwa. This was a old Palace and it was Seven stairs building. First three stairs builded using bricks and next four builded using wood.
Now days only available for see the first floor.and the part of the staircase still available. And I’ve seen the old attached toilet system in here.Very surprising.
Some of old original wall plasters still available and protected.
According to the guide who explained about this palace. It was burned by enemy army. Some of burned marks and lava stones still available.
Very wonderful place.
I love and definitely visit this place again.

The palace of King Parakramabahu, the Great. It is believed that the palace was 7 storeys high during its peak and glorious time, which housed 1,000 chambers. What is left is the 3 storeys high concrete of ruins. Still, it is majestic looking and it makes your imaginations run wild to think of how magnificent this palace was during the glorious days. One of the must-see site at Polonnaruwa Heritage site.

Interesting the sizes and shapes of these ruins, but other than that, not much to see. A lack of information or signage didn’t help.

The palace was built by Parakramabahu I. It purportedly had seven floors and one thousand rooms, the former more credible to historians than the latter. The remains of three levels does give a glimpse of what would have been a monumental structure.

Carvings, religion, human skill, natural beauty of stone - the lure of ancient mystery! Can spend hours in these places...

This is the ruins of a 7 story building from a former kingdom from thousands of years ago. It's part of the historical polonnaruwa ruins and definitely worth a visit.

This is just one part of a very large complex. It's nice to imagine how it might have looked when it was not in ruins. Take your time to stroll around, and watch out for the monkeys who might try to grab your food or drink.

We started our explorations of Polonnaruwa at the Weijantha Prasada and while its history is of interest, there are much more fascinating sites within Polonnaruwa. The ruins themselves are large, but its hard to picture what this once looked like. It was incredibly busy with tour groups when we visited. If you are tight on time, you can give this one a miss.

The ruins of this once grand palace that measured 7 storeys and had about 1000 rooms is impressive if you allow your mind to imagine what it originally looked like. Now only a small part of the palace, the walled gardens and queen's pool remain.
