Sigiriya is an ancient rock fortress located near Dambulla town in the Central Province of Sri Lanka. It was the location of the capital and royal palace during the reign of King Kasiyappa (477-495 AD), and after the king’s demise the fortress was used as a Buddhist Monastery until the 14th century AD. Sigiriya, which literally translates to ‘Lion Rock’, is dominated by a gateway in the form of an enormous lion, on a small plateau halfway up a massive column of rock rising to a height of over 600 feet.
