Lion Rock isn’t the only remarkable destination in Sigiriya. Lion’s Paws is situated just before the summit of Sigiriya Rock. As the name suggests, the structure is composed of two gigantic paws, flanking a staircase that leads to the royal palace. The attraction was initially an exquisitely chiselled and enormous structure of the head, chest and paws of a crouching lion with open jaws, guarding the entrance to the 5th-century royal residence of King Kashyapa I. But all that remains today are the paws, a reminder of the significance and opulence of King Kashyapa’s reign.
