Sigiriya, and the city below it functioned as the capital of the Anuradhapura Kingdom until Kashyapa’s death and the defeat of his army; after which the capital returned to Anuradhapura. Sigiriya became a Buddhist monastery until the 14th century, when it was abandoned. In the 16th and 17th centuries, the rock served for brief periods as an outpost of the Kandyan Kingdom before being abandoned again. In 1831, it was discovered by Maj Jonathan Forbes of the 78th Highlanders. Shot for my photo story, “In Each Other’s Shadows”, which ran in the April 2018 issue of “Serendib” magazine.

Built by Karl Maximilian Graf von Ostein in 1788, when he created a park in the Niederwald, it commands one of the best views of the Middle Rhein. The site was a meeting place for many artists and writers of the late 18th century, even before the building of the temple, such as Clemens Brentano and Achim von Arnim, and was thereby significant in the development of Romanticism. In November 1944, the Niederwaldtempel was almost completely destroyed during an Allied bombing raid on Rüdesheim. It was eventually reconstructed, and reopened to the public in 2006. The Niederwaldtempel, the nearby Niederwaldenkmal monument, and the Rüdesheim wine-growing area are all part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. •600D+EFS24/2.8+polariser@1/100,f/8,ISO100 #travelphoto #landscapephoto #architecturephoto #beautifuldestination #deutschland
