Sigiriya

The Ancient City of Sigiriya

Sigiriya, also known as the Lion Rock. Just the sight of this 200-meter-high giant cliff tells something special. The rock holds a secret that you will first discover when you get to the top. However, the surroundings give a clue as to what it is hiding at the top of Sigiriya. A neat system of gardens, caves and water reservoirs demonstrates that the area in a distant past was used for something special. Sigiriya is impressive, not just because of the size and appearance on the horizon. The 1,200 steps leading up to the top and the palace ruins, pass what was once probably the world’s largest painting. Today it is almost faded away by the climate, but there are still frescos elsewhere in Sigiriya.
