Sigiriya (8th wonder of the anciant world)

Sigiriya (Lion's rock) is an ancient fortress and a palace which was built during (AD 477 - 495) by Sri Lankan King Kassapa I. Sigiriya also named as one of the seven "World Heritage Sites of Sri Lanka". King Kassapa was an artistic and creative king who built up his palace on top of rock which rise up 370 m from the bottom. This is the most popular tourist destination in Sri Lanka. You also can found ancient paintings of Frescos which related to painting of Ajantha caves in India.

The name Lion's rock came because of the large statue of a Lion. Currently only remaining the legs of the lion.

      suny51, yes, after 30 years of civil war, now Sri Lanka is very calm and peaceful. Best time to visit Sri Lanka to enjoy fresh beaches in Eastern coast including Arugam Bay (Best surfing place in Asia).
