Buddha Statue at Lankatilaka Polonnaruwa
This is a monolithic Buddha image house built by king Parakramabahu (1153-1186). The Buddha statue is completely made out of clay bricks and it has been 41 feet in height. Specially made flat bricks have been used to build this statue. Today the portion above the shoulder is destroyed.
At the entrance to the building is two massive pillars made from bricks. The tallest one is 58 feet in height. It is thought that these pillars would have been at least twice as tall this before destruction. According to chronicles this building has had five stories. This too is a part of the Ãƒlahana Privena.
