The Story of Sigiriya Book Preview
The Story of Sigiriya is a beautifully illustrated book that presents Sigiriya in a fascinating new light. Senani Ponnamperuma is a brilliant storyteller. Using a crisp narrative style he brings this story alive and introduces us to many previously unknown and overlooked facts. He starts by setting the scene over 1,500 years ago when this story unfolded, introduces us to the key players, and then guides us through the events leading up to the creation, abandonment and rediscovery of what some consider the 8th Wonder of the World. He then continues to describe the ruins today using some of the most vivid and never before seen photographs of Sigiriya.
This “must read” book makes a well versed companion for the informed traveler, amateur historian or keen expatriate wanting to know the real story of Sigiriya.
