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.
