    Ancient City of Sigiriya, Sri Lanka in 4K (Ultra HD)

    Sigiriya (Lion Rock) "is famous for its palace ruins on top of a massive 200 meter high rock surrounded by the remains of an extensive network of gardens, reservoirs and other structures. The rock itself is a lava plug left over from an ancient long extinct volcano." (quote from Wikitravel.com). The complex around the rock and on the summit was built in the 5th century, to serve as a capital, but soon after that Anuradhapura was restored as Sri Lanka's capital and Sigiriya was used as Buddhist monastery until the 14th century. Sigiriya is inscribed as UNESCO World Heritage site, it is the most visited place in Sri Lanka.

    In the second part of the video you will see another impressive rock in the vicinity - Pidurangala - and views from its top to Sigirija.

    Not quite sure about it, I was sure this was like a Russian video I saw about a Buddhist place, but that one was a Dragon. Looked very much the same though. No I have no idea at this stage.

    Found the Russian video on YouTube...it's all in Russian, so nothing to be understood when they speak, but I was fascinated by what I saw in it...
