Galvihara, Polonnoruwa, Sri Lanka.

 Photo taken in the 1930 and photo taken by me in 2010 July.
Galvihara was constructed by King Parakramabahu 1 -(Arm strong) in the 12th Century AD.
"The larger seated Buddha is framed by Sanchi-style arch, with tiny bodhisattavas looking down on him from their celestial dwellings-perhaps showing a touch of Mahayana Buddhist influence, with its belief in Bodhisattvas".
