Water flows into the pond through dragon (Makara) mouths which have been fixed on the four cardinal directions of the pond. Near the pond there is a vestibule and a urinal. The Galabeddha biso pokuna is bounded by a parapet wall. Today one can see the parapet wall’s foundation. Near the pond ruins of the palace of the regional king/ queen can be seen today; only columns and stone foundation are visible along with ancient dagaba and image house.
