Ceylon [i.e. Sri Lanka] - Polonnaruwa, 1910 - 1911
Scope and Contents
A view looking towards the Kiri or Milk dagoba: 'so-called from its white coat of protective chunam [cement or plaster] ... To me it was the most beautiful, perhaps because it was the most simple of all the legacies of the past at Polonnaruha, and it is easy, looking at it, to reconstruct the perfection of the original, snow-white, surmounted by the hti and the spire of gold which we know it possessed.' (Williams 1950, page 147).
- 1910 - 1911
