The word vatadage literally means circular relic house or shrine. The Polonnaruwa Vatadage is one of the finest out of the ten remaining Vatadages in Sri Lanka. The two guard stones on either side of the Moonstone at each entrance deserve a special mention, they are an example of the finest and most elaborate stone carvings of ancient Sri Lanka.
