SIGIRIYA

 

Another world heritage site in Sri Lanka. Sigiriya is a unique showpiece of 5th century civilization. Building a royal palace on top of the rock and making a dream kingdom in Sigiriya village proved the capability and the knowledge the early Sri Lankan civilians had about town planning, architecture, irrigation system, engineering, painting, poetry and their high standard of life style. Once you scale the rock and explore the entire site you will surely realize how strong and active those people would have been.
Sigiriya was build by King Kassapa I and reigned from 477 - 495 AC.
