SRI LANKA. 3/8. Ancient city of Sigiriya

Another postcard of Sri Lanka sent from Czech Republic. I think it would have been a great thing if it was actually posted from Sri Lanka. I wish I knew Vladimir at the time he was there. :)

Ancient City of Sigiriya

The ruins of the capital built by the parricidal King Kassapa I (477–95) lie on the steep slopes and at the summit of a granite peak standing some 180m high (the 'Lion's Rock', which dominates the jungle from all sides). A series of galleries and staircases emerging from the mouth of a gigantic lion constructed of bricks and plaster provide access to the site.
