Visiting the ruins of the Royal Palace in Polonnaruwa, North Central Province, Sri Lanka.

The Royal Palace, constructed by Parakramabahu I, was a magnificent structure measuring 31m by 13m, and is said to have had seven storeys. The 3metre thick walls have holes to receive the floor beams for two higher floors; however, if there were another four levels, these must have been made of wood. The roof in this main hall, which had 50 rooms in all, was supported by 30 columns.
