Historical facts of Sigiriya :

The first ten couplets of chapter 38 deal with the takeover of Anuradhapura by Tamil rulers and the emergence on the scene of Dhatusena, son of an ordinary householder belonging to the Maurya (Moriya or "peacock") clan. This is followed by a very interesting story about the early life of Dhatusena (couplets 11-28).
