It was a fresh morning , we woke up early to visit Sigiriya, a fortress built on top a single rock (known as Lion Rock).We decided to visit the Sigiriya museum first before heading out to climb the Lion rock (I strongly recommend to do this, as you will get to learn about the lion rock and its history and trust me it makes your climb even more interesting when you could relate the history and the place).Once you reach top, you will realize that the rock looks like a lion. Mind-blown!! This was not just enough ? i was stunned looking at the palace, it was so huge and royal , imagine people building this fortress at 660 feet(during 473 A.D). The palace is absolutely beautiful and peaceful as it looked, you could see whole Sigiriya and Buddha statue in kilometers distance. This place is a must visit.
