Little bit about Polonnaruwa Vatadage

This structure can be described as the ultimate development of ancient architecture. The uniqueness of this building is that it is supported by the use of a roof and in turn, the roof is supported by two pillars. The pillars outside the wall are still undamaged and stand strong. It consists of a small stupa with beautifully carved statues on the side. These statues appear to be completely different as the curly hair, which is a common feature with other statues, is missing and the robe is unusual. King Nissanga Malla, who ruled Sri Lanka from 1187 to 1196, is said to be the main renovator of this building, although the building is believed to be built many years before his time period.
