Sigiriya- translated to The Lion Rock, was once the capital of a flourishing kingdom in Sri Lanka. The King built his palace right on top of this huge rock. Filled with frescos that can be seen even today, it is quite a tiring trek up to the top. But once up there, the calmness you feel is completely worth it.
Next up- The massive moat that was built to keep enemies away.
