1) SIGIRIYA ROCKWhile staying in Kandy, we decided to visit Sigiriya rock ( only one direct bus is available from Kandy to Sigiriya which leaves in the morning) , a place of utmost archaeological & historical importance world wide.
Next day we went to the Ancient Culture Lion Rock Palace of Sigiriya, which has museum, historical essence, Its view astonishes the visitors with the unique harmony between the nature and human imagination, includes remnants of a ruined palace, surrounded by an extensive network of fortifications, vast gardens, ponds, canals, alleys and fountains. The construction of such a monument on a massive rock approximately 200 meters higher from the surrounding landscape required advanced architectural skill.
We clicked some pics and walked around. We could hear the wind hitting one side of the rock. When we walked over to that spot, we were literally blown away by the sheer force of the wind!
