The Mirror Wall In Sigiriya

Another unique and exquisite sight in Sigriya is the Mirror Wall that is highly polished and plastered with a mix of egg white, burnished lime, wild honey and beeswax. It is 1500 years old and covered in cobweb and graffiti left by visitors over the years. It is almost like a visitors’ book which includes literary fragments and short poems reflecting the visitors’ impression of the rock, the Damsels and other architectural elements in the ancient citadel. In fact, the oldest graffiti dates back to the 7th century.
