Overview
The Deepa Uyana lies outside and to the west of Parakramabahu’s walled palace enclosure extending to the shores of the Parakrama Samudraya.
The Council Chamber of King Nissankamalla, the area which is today called the Promontory, was amongst the many parks built by Parakramabahu and Nissankamalla. Anciently it was referred to as the Dipuyyana in Pali meaning an Island Garden.
The Chulavamsa mentions some of the constructions that graced this beautiful island garden. The Dhavalaghara was a white house made entirely of stucco, the Vidyamandapa was a pavilion built to illustrate the various branches of science, the Dolamandapa was a swing pavilion , the Kridamandapa was a sports pavilion, the Mayuramandapa was the Peacock Pavilion, the Sanimandapa was the Pavilion of Saturn, and it was made out of Ivory, Adasamandapa was a Mirror Pavilion, Srngaravimana was of four storeys adorned with pictures, Anantapushkarani was a pond of stone whose layers resembled the coils of the serpent King Ananta and Citrapuskarani or the picture pond adorned with pictures.
According to the above account this garden would have been like no other. A grand garden complex – maybe even grander that the Great Parakramabahu’s palace complex.
