Massive rock formation of Pidurangala stands two kilometers to the north of Sigiriya, the rock fortress atop of which King Kasyapa ruled the island country of Ceylon in the 5th century. Both are prominent projections protruding from the jungle floor surroundings.
My trusty friend Kosala Weheragoda (should have been a sherpa) and I scaled the mighty temple rock fortress together.
