Sigiriya - Lion's Rock

Today we visited a 5th century fortress that a local King built out of solid rock.

In the pic, Justin is taking a leap from the top of Sigirya.

It was called Sigiriya and it was amazing. Some call it the 8th wonder of the world. They had running water & air conditioning when the fortress was functioning.

It was a Buddhist holiday, so the park was packed. After the long hike, we waited a long time in line to climb up to the very top. The view was totally worth it! Click here for pictures of our climb in Sigirya.
