The Sitawaka Kingdom which was founded in 1521 lasted only 71 years. Yet, within that relatively short period of time, it became renowned as a kingdom of brave warriors. Stories about their exploits spread well beyond local shores, all the way to Portugal in West Europe. In fact, the Sitawaka Kingdome achieved a record that remains unbroken to date. For, the biggest military defeat suffered by a Western army on Asian soil took place there. This book contains a collection of historical and folk tales including illustrations, maps and an A3 size, colour travel guide to places of interest in Sitawaka.
