Poya Day in Medirigiriya #5

Poya Day in Medirigiriya, Sri Lanka #5 by Son of the Morning Light on 500px.com

“The Pichcha Mal Viharaya is easily the best preserved of the image houses. It is also the largest. It’s five exquisite Buddhas give the ruin a tranquillity that makes one want to sit and reflect on the motives, beliefs, and sheer craftsmanship of Medirigiriya’s builders. In fact, it is not uncommon to see visitors praying and reciting Buddhist verses; particularly on Poya days.”
