Built by King Kashyapa I of Anuradhapura when he moved his capital to Sigiriya, the monastery is also believed to be the site of his funeral pyre. Shot for my photo story on Sigiriya and Pidurangala, which ran in the April 2018 issue of “Serendib” magazine.

In the others, every image has been beheaded, though whether this was by treasure hunters or foreign invaders is unclear. The heads of the statues are nowhere to be found; either carried away or smashed to bits in the search for hidden treasure. In front of the statues is a stone receptacle with compartments to hold different forms of offerings. Next to it is a small wooden replica of a stupa or dagaba. Most of the Medirigiriya complex dates to the 7th century, part of the late Anuradhapura period of Sri Lankan history. Shot for my May 2018 cover story, “Circles within Circles”, for “Serendib”, magazine.

Flanking the entrance steps are two purnaghatas — pots with stylised lotus bases — and the dage or relic house itself is encircled by a low stone wall with the post-and-rail design common in Buddhist architecture, and reminiscent of the Sanchi Stupa in India. Beyond the entrance are three concentric circles of pillars that would have once supported a roof. Visible in the photo are one of the vatadage‘s four beautiful limestone Buddhas, facing the principle directions of the compass. Shot for my photo story, Circles within Circles, which is the cover feature of the May 2018 issue of Serendib magazine.
