Mystery of Hagia Sophia - the same things found in Sri Lanka and Turkey. What are these – sarcophagus or anabiosis bath tubs?

Hagia Sophia (Holy Wisdom, the unique 1500 years old Orthodox temple),
served as Eastern Orthodox cathedral and seat of the Patriarchate of Constantinople

Recently I've been to Istanbul (Turkey) and visited Hagia Sophia temple where I saw the same things as in Mihintale, Polonnaruwa and Anuradhapura (Sri Lanka) before – very special "bath tubs" or "sarcophagus" (on the photos below) which look completely the same.
