Sigiriya – the ancient fortress on a 660 ft high (200 m) rock, one of most recognizable historical sites of Sri Lanka. The ancient citadel was built in the 5th century. There are steps which will take you to the very top but climbing them is a bit of challenge in the tropical heat. This picture taken by me in 2010.
