The Quadrangle

Situated in the heart of Polonnaruwa, a few yards northwest of the Siva Devale, the complex is known as the Quadrangle. Some of the most magnificent monuments of Polonnaruwa (about twelve monuments) are clustered in this enclosure called the Quadrangle or Dalada Maluwa (Terrace of the Tooth). Entrance is through a gateway, equipped with a low basin for washing the feet before entry into the sacred complex.
