At 9am our driver took us to the Temple of the Tooth. Where it is said lays the molar tooth of Buddha. Before we entered we were made to walk under an elephant under its trunk and under it's body 3 times.

photo of sigiriya rock and mist

Sigiriya Rock stands 200m out of the jungle and was transformed in the 5th Century by King Kassapa into a fortress that became his safe haven, as he became a little bit of a scaredy cat for his life. The King's palace "The Heaven Castle" remains today only in it's foundations. There are frescoes on the rock walls of pretty Sigiriya Maidens.
