LION'S PAWS AND STAIRS


Facilitate Agents:

Lion's Paws and Entrence Stairs in Sigiriya is taken the attraction of the number of tourists who are climbing the Sigiriya Rock. The Structure is well designed by the ancient civil Engineers in Sri Lanka.

One of Sri Lanka's most notable places is Sigiriya. As you may be able to tell, Sigiriya is an ancient rock fortress and palace ruin. One of the old kings of Sri Lanka built a fortress back in 490AD to protect themselves from surrounding invaders. Having climbed to the top and viewed the surrounding,any one can understand why. You get a stunning 360 view.

The Lion's paw is the entrance to this top of the sigiriya rock. In ancient times it's said that there were a structure of a full lion. As to enter to the top of the rock fortress , should go through the mouth of the lion in the entrance gate.

Lion Gate

A gigantic brick lion once sat at the end of the rock. The final ascent to the summit was between the paws and through its mouth. Today, only the paws remain.

Top of the Sigiriya Rock and palace

The ruins of the capital built by the parricidal King Kassapa (477-95) when you lie on the steep slopes and at the summit of a granite peak standing some 370 m high (the 'Lion's Rock', which dominates the jungle from all sides). A series of galleries and staircases emerging from the mouth of a gigantic lion constructed of bricks and plaster provide access to the site.
