Sigiriya...The Castle on the Rock!

The view of the rock from the hotel was not very impressive, Abuja's Zuma rock gives more of an intimidating sight. However as soon as i set foot on the grounds of the castle, i fell in love with the wonder of the past that must have lived here and let my imagination to carry me further from the present algea filled pools, to a time when beautiful concubines wade in the crystal clear pools trickling down from the rock, and sever guards must have stood alert, protecting their patricidal King.

Fountains and Swimming pools, Caves and Paintings of topless maidens.

Sigiriya must have been a world of luxury and royal overindulgence.
