Sigiriya (Lion’s rock) is an ancient rock fortress and palace ruin situated in the central Matale District of Sri Lanka, surrounded by the remains of an extensive network of gardens, reservoirs, and other structures. A popular tourist destination, Sigiriya is also renowned for its ancient paintings (frescos). The Sigiriya was built during the reign of King Kassapa I (AD 477 – 495), and it is one of the seven World Heritage Sites of Sri Lanka.

    Excellent piece of good work – coincidentally well timed. Sri Lanka has been hitting headline in news for far too long for wrong reasons and now the air is clear and the gradual process of depicting true image of the country has started to rolling-on. Factual evidence of ancient cultural heritage, engineering skills and good life

    Been there, done that and got tee-shirts during all the troubles. I have climbed this rock and what an experience it was going up and coming down and I loved every minute of it. I climbed it with 2 UK friends and my 2 friends from Sri Lanka plus our expert guide who spoke 7 languages fluently. I love this area of my beloved Sri Lanka and would love to attempt it again age willing. We had photos taken at the highest point but unfortunately I lost them in the UK floods of July 2007.
