Access to Sigiriya Rock

Access to Sigiriya Rock

Here we see the method of reaching the top of Sigiraya Rock in the centre of Ceylon, an ancient palace built on a rock. Note the steps cut into the rock and the metal hand rail.

Many thanks to Ken Creed for sending us these pictures, which were taken by his wife's uncle Terry Ruff during his time with No.357 Squadron, a special operations unit that operated over Burma, Malaya and Sumatra.
