Water Gardens, Sigiriya Reviews

  • Attraversando il fossato interno si accede ai giardini acquatici. Il primo tratto è costituito da quattro laghetti disposti a quadrato: quando sono pieni, creano un isolotto al centro, collegato da viottoli ai giardini circostanti. Nelle zone rettangolari a nord e a sud dei laghetti sono visibili rovine di padiglioni.
