Ancient City of Sigiriya: Sri Lanka’s "Eighth World Wonder," Part 2 of 2 (INT)

Considered an extremely impressive, if not perplexing, feat of ancient engineering, with construction comparable to the pyramids of Egypt or Stonehenge in England. Included in the listing are the surrounding regal gardens at the base of the monolith, which have a complex system of aqua engineering complete with dams, locks, canals, bridges, and fountains. In Sigiriya, the Mirror Wall creates shimmering golden reflections, one example of the creative ingenuity of the fifth century design and architecture. "Now, the Mirror Wall is considered as one of the most significant features in Sigiriya. One of the unique features of Sigiriya is its technology. The greatness of it is that the earlier designer used water, flora, and the rock all together to create these amazing water gardens in Sigiriya in such a pleasant manner."
