Description

The Kumara Pokuna [pond] in Polonnaruwa [1070 A.D.] is  a magnificent example of an ancient Royal bath, built entirely of smoothened stone. Water was brought to the pond by two underground stone pipes and directed to the pond through two dragon head [makara] gargoyles. Ruins of an ancient changing room can also be seen nearby.

You can reach this pond made out of stone slabs. This tank has been used in the ime of King Parakramabahu.

The Kumara Pokuna or Royal Baths is a communal pool where the ladies of the court took their evening baths.
