Director General of the Central Cultural Fund Prof. Prishantha Gunawardena said that a final decision regarding the ban on photographing frescoes in Sigiriya will be made after further discussions.

The Central Cultural Fund prohibited photographing frescoes from yesterday (30th).

Damage caused to frescoes by direct flashing is the main reason for the ban while the recent collapse of an ancient stripe of plaster in the frescoes cave has also urged the decision.
