Stamps from Sri Lanka – Polonnaruwa Era

Stamps from Sri Lanka – Polonnaruwa Era

A Set of Six Stamps was issued by Sri Lanka in 2009 on Polonnaruwa Era.

Polonnaruwa Era existed between AD 1065- 1120. The governing period of this time was about 186 years and 19 rulers had sat on the throne in that period. During the final period in the Anuradhapura era, the Cholas shifted the political power to Polonnaruwa, which was situated in the eastern side of the dry zone. The main reason was security, as it was regarded as a strategic location to guard against an invasion from Ruhuna, the refuge of the Sinhalese liberation force.

Still the Cholas were unsuccessful in defending themselves against Vijayabahu’s offensive riot against Polonnaruwa. They Surrendered in 1070 and left the island.

Polonnaruwa had its own fabulous Buddhist architecture and irrigational network that had been built over the centuries by earlier Sinhala rulers.
