Sri Lanka


Sigiriya Rock (or Lion Rock) rises sheer out of Sri Lanka’s central plains, towering to 180 metres over the surrounding landscape. On the top of the rock you will find the ruins of the palace of King Kassappa who reigned over a short-lived kingdom from 477 to 495AD. Reached by passing between two giant paws and making your way through a series of galleries and up staircases, stop to admire the magnificent frescoes as you ascend. Around the base of the rock you’ll find the remains of Kassappa’s pleasure gardens whilst the site museum is excellent. Sigiriya was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982.
