Sigiriya, Lion Rock: Legend Has It That The Gods Erected The Site

Giorgio Tsoukalos: We witnessed incredible drawings of celestial beings emerging from the skies. And they’re hovering in midair, which makes you wonder, “What did our forefathers want to show us here?”

Sri Lanka’s Sigiriya: This strange rock is around 180 meters tall and is known as ‘Lion Rock’ (or Lion Rock).

“The ‘Lion Rock’ was discovered in 1831 by a renowned figure in the British army,” says David Childress (author of Technology of the Gods). What he discovered was a massive natural monolith (or rock) with a long stairway constructed into it. On top of all, there stood an incredible historic palace. It’s a remote location that climbs vertically.”

“Sigiriya was undoubtedly a spectacular Buddhist temple from the first millennium BC, thus about AD 500 the temple was transformed into a fort for the monarch, basically a castle,” says Andrew Collins, author of “The Cygnus Mystery.” There are several large gardens and structures. On top of the rock, there are megaliths. There are also several caverns, each of which contains several paintings.”

Some academics believe the pictures of ladies on these paintings depict girls at the king’s court, while others believe they are religious figures. Some of the photos found at the site might be evidence of alien interaction in the distant past, according to ancient astronaut theorists.

“We’ve seen amazing drawings of celestial people emerging through the clouds,” says Giorgio Tsoukalos (Aliens from the Past). And they’re hovering in midair, which makes you wonder, “What did our forefathers want to show us here?”

Sigiriya was raised with the assistance of gods from the sky, according to folklore and local tales. It was an interesting and lovely way to express what they’d seen but couldn’t put into words. Misinterpretation of a visit by extraterrestrial travelers with superior technology is a possibility.

Is it truly possible that the paintings depict extraterrestrial creatures, as some ancient astronaut theorists believe? If that’s the case, may there have been another, more ethereal motive for ancient builders to construct a massive metropolis on top of this massive monolith?

“We usually watch how our ancestors revered these gigantic and strange rocks,” says Philip Coppens, author of The Ancient Alien Question. They are, in some ways, passageways between our world and the realm of the gods for them. We see more clearly once proof of that in Sigiriya.”

“The basic idea of the monolith (large rock generally consisting of a single block), as well as the thought of the big mountain reaching the sky,’ can be significant to people ancient and modern,” says Robert Schoch, author of “Forgotten Civilization.” This is incredibly precious to many people. I imagine the heavenly realm or the enigmatic ‘Mount Meru.'”

“Mount Meru – or fundamentally Meru as some say – is the word used in Buddhist cultures to signify the cosmic mountain,” says Richard Leviton, author of “Encyclopedia of Earth Myths.” It is in the center of the cosmos and exists on several levels, not physically, but energetically. The gods have higher dwellings, and everyone has their palaces and cities.”

“Mount Meru being the domain of the gods, it was recognized as a location of interaction and connection with the heavenly beings themselves,” says Andrew Collins, author of “The Cygnus Mystery.” It’s the gateway between our planet and the realm of the gods.”

“Sigiriya is more or less a duplicate of Mt. Meru to a smaller extent clearly, our ancestors picked this rock and began creating structures at the highest point of it,” says Philip Coppens, author of The Ancient Alien Question.

Is it feasible, as ancient astronaut theorists speculate, that Sigiriya was erected to honor and join with heavenly creatures, the extraterrestrials?
