With demise of King Kashyapa (The founder of Sigiriya fortress, Sri Lanka) Sigiriya was assailed by the slowly advancing jungle and was caught in the demolishing hand of time. In the 19th century vestige of the glory that was Sigiriya were explored and rediscovered by British officers and administrators.http://www.urlaub-sr-lanka.info/sri-lanka-holiday/2012/02/rediscovery-of-oldest-landscaped-garden-in-asia/
I do offer tours and excursion covering all the attraction in the island and I love to share my knowledge with you.

What a handsome figure of a dragon. No wonder I fall madly in love with the Alani Dragon now, the avatar, it's a gorgeous dragon picture.

He didn't ask, but I allowed him anyway.  It helps when the Admin. has 38 years in Landscape Hort. and 6 years teaching it.  Ancient landscapes are one of my interests.   Nick, the UK has some of the finest examples in the west.  There are countys in Britain that were entirely planned as to what was planted where.  The modern discipline of Landscape Architecture had it's foundings in the UK.
 
His site boarders on acceptable, so w'll leave it.
