About Nissanka Latha Mandapaya

Nissanka Latha Mandapaya is a one of a kind structure in the old city of Polonnaruwa in Sri Lanka. Worked by King Nissanka Malla (1187-1196) and named after him, it is situated close to the western passageway of the Dalada Maluva, the zone that contains the most seasoned and most holy landmarks in the city. An adjacent stone engraving distinguishes this as the building utilized by Nissanka Malla to tune in to pirith (droning of Buddhist sacred writings).
The structure is a lifted stone stage with various stone segments and encompassed by a low stone divider. These stone sections are the remarkable element about the Nissanka Latha Manadapaya, since they are cut in a way that is discovered no place else in the nation. The eight stone segments are masterminded in two lines, with four in each line. Probably used to help a rooftop, every one of them is roughly 8 feet 4 inches (2.54 m) in stature.
In every one of these segments, the crown is cut in the state of a blooming lotus bud. Whatever is left of the segment is extravagantly cut to take after the stem of the bloom. Not at all like stone segments usually found in the design of this period, these are not straight, but rather are bended in three spots. As indicated by prehistorian Senarath Paranavithana, the stone segments at the Nissanka Latha Mandapaya are the best models of this element of old Sri Lankan engineering.
