...Another beatiful part of the Sigiriya rock...must be really imposing to go through this lion paws and climb those steps...I'm already out of breath by seeing them ^__^
...It is said that in the ancient time one had to walk through the wide open mouth of a lion to get inside the complex...that must has been an even more impressive sight and entrance!! Thanks a lot Ravindra!!

With as usual a set of great stamps.
Two very big lion claws (unearthed in 1898) give way to the final and the most important stage of the palace complex and therefore this site is also known as Lions Rock.
