MEDIVEAL SINHALA NAMES

The names inserted under are those published by Dr S Paranavitane taken from the 0ver 1000 short verses or poem written from the 8-12 Cent AD on the Mirror wall at Sigiriya. This was published by the Archeological dept.

SIGIRIYA.

No one can  described this , a Wonder of  the world;  better than  a unknown poet from the 8 cent AD , which he scribbled on the Mirror Wall.[Verse no 115 ]

The verse is evidently addressed to a one who showed no signs of jubilation when he saw  Sigiriya. The verse suggests that such a person would not even be satisfied  even by the pleasures of heaven, for the only place which bears comparison with heaven is Sigiriya.

It is famous for its paintings

The painting at Sigiriya.

Another unknown visitor to Sigiriya during the eight Cent AD left his appreciation of these  ladies on the Mirror Wall-

To quote a few of  visitors  impression  of the 6 to 12 Cent AD on the paintings- placed for posterity on the Mirror Wall –

The face of a beautiful woman is compared to the Moon, (No.394), her teeth to pearls (No 648), and her hair to dark clouds (No.331). Less hackneyed are the comparisons of woman’s eyebrows to nimba-leaves (394), her lips to Na-mal buds (No. 394),her hand to a pendant of flowers (No105) and her eyes to jewel lamp (No. 50), the smile of a woman exhibiting her teeth, is like the row of seeds of water-melon-a simile still in common use among the Sinhalese villagers (No. 357); the ladies sweet speech is as exhilarating as a cup of wine (No. 627); a fair damsel standing by the side of a dark one is like a Vatakolu flower entangled in a ni-katarolu (No334) or in a another an Asela flower in the vicinity of a blue water-lily (No. 583);- S Paranavitane.
