Mapagala

In the 1920’s, then commissioner of archaeology Hocart took note of the cyclopean styled stone walls and the square stones of this ancient citadel located South of Sigiriya. The ability to chisel such massive block of granite to such precision suggests that Iron smelting and tools were available to the stonemason. This is supported by the carving of the thrones found at the entrance and the summit of the citadel.
