Rock Cut Pool, Sigiriya Rock

Rock Cut Pool, Sigiriya Rock

Here we see a rock cut pool or cistern at the top of Sigiriya Rock, an impressive 5th century fortress built on top of a isolated rock in the centre of Sri Lanka.

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.
