Sigiriya - Sri Lanka
The design is about a rock fortress located in the central province of Sri Lanka


The design is about a rock fortress and a kingdom located in the central province of Sri Lanka. Sigiriya pronounced see-gi-ri-yə, is a kingdom located on top of a huge lion-like rock. This site was selected by King Kasyapa (477 – 495 CE) for his new capital. He built a gateway to the castle in the form of an enormous lion (The head part cannot be found now). The rock fortress had many interesting features such as a mirror wall, irrigation system to send water up to the rock for its fountains and ponds. And an art gallery of portraits of enchanting women using natural paint extracted from the area.
