Gal Potha (Stone Book)


Frozen Memories

Gal-Potha (Stone Book) Gal-Potha (Stone Book)

In Polonnaruwa, Sri Lanka there is a book. Not just any book. It’s a book inscribed into a stone that is 26’10” long, 4’7″ wide and 2’2″ thick. The text holds the words of King Nissanka Malla on it’s upper surface, a king that reigned in the 12th century BC. It describes himself, his rule and the eligibility for being a king of Sri Lanka

I find it amazing that many ancient writers works is available in paper for us to read, a window into the souls of the ancients. I find it doubly amazing that these words, inscribed in stone, is the original copy, a first edition and that the art of the monument is exquisite.
