Photographer's Note

The height is 200m. It is not easy to climb at all, but once a palace was built on the top of this huge rock by the King Kasyapa.
This is " Sigiriya Rock ".
In 1875, Sigiriya Rock was discovered in the deep jungle. It was 1400 years later after the death of King Kasyapa who was called "Cruel parricides".
