We have covered many ancient, perplexing, unexplained sites, which can be found all over the world.
Astonishing achievements located far within earth’s history, many still baffling those who study them even to this day.
Possible ancient kings, with unimaginable wealth and power, using as yet, unknown technologies to create ancient sanctuaries, capable of sustaining their once flourishing civilisation.
Perched upon precarious ledges, even upon the tops of mountains, it is not only the construction techniques which evade modern explanation, but on many occasions, how these ancient people built such structures,,, at such hostile locations,,, is equally challenging to explain.
Located within the northern Matale District near the town of Dambullain in Sri Lanka, is a stone monolithic settlement perched high above the jungle, its stone ruins and ancient sculptures displaying the weathering of countless millenia. An ancient rock fort which is undoubtedly a testament to these ancient people’s miraculous capabilities.
Known as Sigiriya or the lions rock, it is an astonishing structure built atop an enormous rock formation, towering some 200 metres into the sky.
According the academia, lions rock was constructed within the last 2000 years, however, future, yet little discussed archaeological explorations, have realised many remains and artefacts which date back far before this initial hasty dating, strongly suggesting an original origin far earlier in history.
About halfway up the side of the rock is also the astonishing gateway in the form of enormous lion’s feet. Above these, would have been everything a small royal entourage would have needed to live a life in luxury, and virtual safety.
The question is, who were the first inhabitants of this gigantic rock fort?
Who or what were they hiding from, so far up the sky?
And most importantly, how did they build it?
