Thivanka Pilimage

Tivanka is the most important building in the Jetavana Monastery. It is an image-house. The name is derived from the image of the Lord Buddha in the narrow antechamber, which is seen in the ‘Tivanka’ or thrice bent posture.

The most important paintings of the Polonnaruwa period were found on the walls of the Tivanka.
