SRI LANKA ~Sigiriya Gardens-UNESCO ~

Another stunning view of "Sigiriya" or "Lion's Rock"... A great aerial view of the gardens from the top of the rock where the palace is situated...
Thanks a lot Ravindra for this first card in 2013 of "The Pearl of the Indian Ocean", Sri Lanka!!:-)

With nice stamp and cancellation: 100 years of aviation centenary (Issued 07-12-2012)
Sigiriya gardens are one of the oldest landscaped gardens in the world and are really good preserved.
Sigiriya has three main gardens: a water garden, the terraced garden, and a boulder garden.

In 1982, UNESCO declared the location to be one of its World Heritage sites.
