Shivanataraja, Gadaladeniya Rock Temple

Pilimatalawa, 14th century AD

On a Dravidian Jamb leading to the sanctum of Buddha
Lord Shiva with flowing locks, dances the measures of time
For Ganesvarachari, the South Indian architect,
The temples of Vijaynagar and the Pandyan palaces
Are as close to heart as Kandyan murals that adorn the walls
