A palace, a pleasure garden and an impenetrable fortress created by a parricidal King during 5th century AD, this magnificent creation centering a 180 feet tall bolder where on the summit the king built his palace with walk ways leading to the palace decorated with magnificent frescos and gardens created with immense precision with the grandest entrance – between the paws and through the mouth of a massive figure of a lion, is truly one of the greatest creations and wonders of the world. Traces of pre historic civilizations were found at the location and based on stone inscriptions found, the area surrounding has been used by meditating Buddhist monks for centuries. The intricate details of the structure as a fort, as a pleasure garden and as a palace complex is truly amazing and the technological feat achieved building this magnificent creation is evident with its to-date functional irrigations system even after many centuries.
