Rock and dog by golftragic

Rock and dog

This shot gives some idea of the way the rock towers above the extensive surrounds where the remains of many old structures are now carefully maintained. Sri Lanka rulers were often very protective of water, and great builders of dams, baths and water features. Multiple ruins/foundations still exist over a wide area and there are traces of water storages on top of the rock.
I'm glad you kept the people in it- it shows how massive the rock is. And that staircase really is incredible!

Gives a great sense of perspective showing the people against the huge rock.

An incredible monolith - looks good with the pathway leading your eye to it.

Oh wow, that's a long way up!

It's very dramatic with the towering cliff face behind. I also love that everyone.....including the dog......are looking the other way!

Does the rock have cultural significance Marnie, or were people simply climbing it for the view (or bragging rights)?

@olivetreeann Sure is Ann, I don't know how anyone climbed up and down that.

@casablanca Hadn't noticed that one, well spotted.

@merrelyn Yes, and yes. Though there are some very interesting ruins up the top if you're into that kind of thing. I saw them in photos and models, not first-hand.

@gilbertwood Thanks Denise, it just pops up out of a flat area.

This looks to be a good place to explore!
