Sri Lanka – Sigiriya Rock

I’m not really a good story teller but here goes….

Once upon a time, there was a King who ruled the lands of Sri Lanka. He had 2 sons; the eldest, a ‘bastard’ an illegitimate child from the mistress who was neglected by society. And there was the King’s second son, a royal breed whose mother was the Queen of Sri Lanka.

Years passed and the King declared that his legitimate son is the heir to the throne because he is born from a royal family. The announcement made the first son furious which led him to kill the King. The young prince knew that his bastard brother will go after him and kill him so he escaped to India. The eldest son then decided to change the ruling and wanted to build a new kingdom.

He then decided to build his palace on the Sigiriya Rock.

10 years later the second son formed an army in India and made a grand return to Sri Lanka. He fought against his brother and won the battle. The bastard king killed himself because he couldn’t defeat his younger brother. So the kingdom was restored to its actual location and the rock was used by Buddhist monks which is now a tourist attraction.
