Little bit about Sigiriya

Sigiriya is an ancient city well know for the the Sigiriya rock fortress, located very close to the Dambulla city.

The Sigiriya rock fortress is a much revered and widely visited natural monument in the north central part of the country. One of Sri Lanka’s ancient kings - King Kashyapa used this as his palace and fortress. Standing at over 200 meters tall this rock is stunning to look at from afar while climbing atop it is an exhilarating experience.

On the way up visitors will be able to see ancient ruins of the kingdom, paintings and a gateway with giant lion paws chiseled into the rock. When you get to the top the 360 degree view is breathtaking and completes one of the most special experiences in Sri Lanka
