Description
View from above of the moonstone with most of the elements of the typical design found in King Parākramabāhu's edifices. This one also has an almost complete lotus blossom at the center. It also has a narrow band between those of the two bands with animals, which has atypical motifs arranged in groups of four and separated by five wider, highly ornamented motifs.
