Dambulla rock as seen from Sigiriya. Look reeeeaaaallly closely right at the base of the small round hill at the center left of the pic, and you’ll see something sorta shiny. I’m sparing you any closeup shots of this enormous gilded Buddha image. (Quoth Lonely Planet: “…a very kitschy structure completed in 2000 using Japanese donations. On top…sits a 30m-high Buddha…Signs claim it’s the largest Buddha in the world, but it’s not even the largest in Sri Lanka.”)
…And the unmistakeable Sigiriya (with some other round little hillock on the left), as seem from top o’ the rock in Dambulla.
