Sigiriya, The Lion Rock Kingdom

The Palace on the Rock !

Located in the middle of Sri Lanka, near to one of major archeological attraction Dambulla. I never miss this place in my tours, since guest should realize the ancient technology of ancient Sri lanka. The palace is located on the rock above 200 meters, shaped of a seated Lion-Singhagiriya in Sinhalese. Rock is in a mid of reserved forest and surrounded by a trapped pond. Water carved ponds are still functioning for ages. Sigirya is famous for it’s frescoes on the wall – Bithusithuwam and Mirror wall- the waxed wall writing. Sigiriya was a capital in Sri Lanka in the ages of King Kasyapa, with many village settlements around the rock.
