Sri Lanka Things to Do: 539 reviews and 890 photos
The final section of the climb to the top of the rock goes up through the paws of the 'Lion'. "Sigiriya" is a shortened version of "Lion's Throat" which the stairs to the top went up and through. Nowadays, only the paws are left - enough to give you an impression of how large the old lion must have been. The stairs are very steep and there is no water on top.
