Sigiriya video clips from YouTube

One of the places I want to visit at some point in the future is the ancient rock fortress Sigiriya in Sri Lanka. There are many stories about what it was; the mainstream view is that it was built by a fifth century king to guard against his brother (check this Wikipedia page for more on that), then there are others who believe that Sigiriya was built much earlier, and, if I recall correctly, might even have been Lankapura - the city of King Ravana in the Indian epic Ramayana (an idea I found in this book). Regardless, a fascinating ancient monument. Check out these videos that depict Sigiriya & also speculate about it:

1. A clip from a German show that speculates about what Sigiriya may have looked like in the past:



2. A presentation of still photos depicting what Sigiriya looks like now (set to some pleasant Sri Lankan music :):



3. This looks like some vacation video from a visit to Sigiriya:



4. A look around from top of (or at least one high level of) Sigiriya:



5. Some great shots from inside/on Sigiriya on this video:



6. Not crazy about the tour guide on this clip, but amusing, and more importantly, very good videography:

The Meyerowitz Stories is very good

Note - I saw the movie before the Dustin Hoffman sex assault allegations story broke.  Not sure what kind of an experience I would have had watching the movie had I knew about the allegations.
