Remains of palace of Nissanka Malla lies behind the current Polonnaruwa Rest House along with the Audience Hall of of King Nissanka Malla. This place has been probably built mainly with bricks during the reign of King Nissanka Malla (1187-1196) thus there is only very little of this palace complex remains.

Historians believe that the palace would have been a two storied building with top floor made of out of wood.

This palace would have been a dwarf compared the palace of King Maha Parakramabahu  (1153-1186) which had seven stories and 1000 rooms which lies about 1 km from this location.
