    Sigiriya is one of the fewest historical sites with utmost architecture and art that had been faded away for one thousand six hundred years (1600) into oblivion and was forgotten which narrates an interesting tale from the past. Tourists from all over the world get attracted to this breathtaking Sigiriya fortress which is one of the oldest tourist sites. The fortress complex includes remnants of a ruined palace, surrounded by an extensive network of fortifications, vast gardens, ponds, canals, alleys and fountains. According to the ancient Sri Lankan chronicle the Culavamsa, this site was selected by King Kashyapa (477 – 495 AD) for his new capital. He built his palace on the top of this rock and decorated its sides with colorful frescoes. On a small plateau about halfway up the side of this rock he built a gateway in the form of an enormous lion.
