Sigiriya, Sri Lanka .... Photos

lion rock

Sigiriya Rock in Sri Lanka rises 600 feet above the surrounding plain. Can you see why it is called the lion rock?

To me it looks a bit like a lion's head rising above the plain. Perhaps that is why the entrance to the palace was through a lion's mouth flanked by huge lion claws!

From the top of the rock you can see the water gardens that surrounded the palace fortress.

Palace remains

The remains of the palace on top of the rock and the view over the surrounding plain. There is still a lot of research to be done in the area.
