The Rock itself has its unique identity due to its shape not found anywhere else in the Island and can be recognized miles away from the distance.

8The most renowned is the Sigiriya Rock Paintings or Frescoes of Sigiri Damsels locally called as ‘ Sigiri Apsaras’ painted on a Western Rock face cavity about 100 meters high from the rock base .There now remains around 21 paintings of Sigiriya Damsels but there had been around five hundred paintings during King Kassapa’s time along several other places of the same Western Rock face.
