Sigiriya Rock Fortress
Sigiriya, Matale District - Sri Lanka
Translated as Lion Rock, Sigiriya stands proudly, 200 metres tall, with slashes of orange stone that cut across the normally blue Sri Lankan sky. Although a bit of a tourist hot spot if visited just before sundown, Sigiriya and the Dambulla temples combined make for quite the humbling experience.
