Brand new theatre at Polonnaruwa falling into ruin (Pics)

The 'Pulathisi Tharuka Mandapaya' theatre premises in Hingurakgoda Polonnaruwa, is gradually falling into ruin, just months after being inaugurated by president Maithripala Sirisena.

The theatre was built under the Pibidemu Polonnaruwa development project, at a cost of Rs. 25.5 m.

However, it is currently falling into ruin with weeds sprouting everywhere and the premises becoming a place where cattle lie.

Charge that allowing this place to fall into ruin is a waste of public funds, residents question the situation of the building inside.

They urge authorities to look into the matter and prevent further damage.
