Kumara Pokuna
Royal bath situated in the Nandana Uyana
Kumara Pokuna
Kumara Pokuna
This royal bath now known as the Kumara Pokuna‚ must be the pond named Sila Pokkharani referred to in the Mahavansa as built by King Parakramabahu the Great (1153-1186 A.D.). This area lying outside the citadel may have belonged to King Parakramabahu?s royal park named Nandana Uyana. The pond elegantly built with a cruciformed ground plan is designed in such manner as to get water from the adjacent watercourse and is also provided with outlets to drain off the used water. The pavilion near the pond must have served as a changing room.
