Polonnaruwa along with the older Anuradhapura are two ancients and (justly) much celebrated (not to mention venerated) Buddhist capitals in Sri Lanka. I know both of them well. Spent a lot of time, at both places, in my youth. I last visited in 1980. They both have iconic, impressive and sobering Buddhist artifacts — stupa, statues, remains of monasteries and libraries. This movie will do much to get the world to appreciate the beauties and magic of Sri Lanka. I am glad.

Note not the ONLY major movie filmed in Sri Lanka. “The Bridge Over River Kwai” and “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” were ALSO filmed in Sri Lanka.
