Sigirya is an ancient rock fortress which is a massive column of rock nearly 660 feet high which is accessible by steep stairs. Visitors are attracted to this site due to its historical and archaeological significance. One fascinating feature of the site is the Mirror Wall. Situated on the western side of the rock, the Mirror Wall was a brick wall covered with white plaster so highly polished that it could produce reflections which later became a graffiti board, covered with messages from the various visitors to Sigiriya.
