Enter the rock through the jaws of the lion! If you were visiting the Sigiriya Rock in the ancient days of King Kashyapa’s rule; you would have entered it through the mouth of a gigantic stone lion built at the entrance gate. Alas, only the giant paws of the lion remain today due to the challenge of time.
When King Kashyapa built this magnificent citadel 1600 years ago he built it with the intention of not only building a fortress but also to emulate Alakamanda, the mythical, beautiful and prosperous city of the gods.
