Northwest of Polonnaruwa on the Habarana road, Giritale is a sleepy, spread-out settlement alongside the impressive 7th-century Giritale Tank. It’s essentially a rural community, with a few places to stay (all 7km to 15km from Polonnaruwa). It makes a good base for visiting both the ruins of Polonnaruwa and Minneriya National Park.
