palace, the earliest surviving royal palace in Sri Lanka, with several
chambers and a bathing pond. In a sheltered pocket of the giant rock are the
celebrated paintings of 5th century AD, a few which is remaining from around
500 paintings that once covered the rock surface. Meticulously planned water
gardens at the foot of the rock are the earliest such gardens found in Asia.
The boulder gardens are a fine example of landscaping while conserving the
environment. The Mirror Wall, which had been exposed to elements for over
fifteen centuries still carry some of the original sheen that has given it
the name. The site has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
