Sigiriya Rock fortress, or Lion’s Rock as it is commonly referred to, is the most recognisable site of Sri Lanka’s Cultural Triangle. The summit of this almost inaccessible rock looms around 200 metres above the surrounding jungle, and was the setting for a courtly paradise of elegant pavilions amid gardens and pools. The rock was transformed into a recumbent lion by the addition of a brick-built head and foreparts, however nowadays only the paws remain. The rock's natural defences were augmented by broad moats and stone perimeter walls and in the event of an enemy approach, the outer moat was built so as to flood the entire area between the two moats.
