Sigiriya: The Sky Fortress and 8th World Wonder!

Rising 600ft up from the modest plains in Dambulla lies the majestic Sigiriya : The Lion Rock which carries the guarded secrets of an ancient civilization. This UNESCO listed world heritage is an epitome of ancient city building with advanced architectural and irrigation technologies which mesmerize the engineers even today.

History and the Structure

Sigiriya was transformed from a monastery to a gigantic citadel by King Kashyapa in the 5th century in fear of an invasion by his brother Moggallana who was the legitimate heir to the throne. This three layered sublime fortress and palace is sure to get you traverse through the history towards a vivacious reign with magical green gardens, defensive structures, breathtaking art and sophisticated hydraulic systems of which some are working even to this date.

The three layered citadel consists of the ruins of an an upper palace on the flat surface on top of the rock, a mid-level terrace that includes the Lion Gate and the mirror wall with its frescoes, the lower palaces located behind the lavish lower gardens, and the impregnable stone parapet.

Finding the Lion

The capacity of your imagination will be tested in visualizing the enormous lion figure towering against Sigiriya by the paws which are remaining. The brick and wooden staircase between the paws is the portal into the mesmerizing sky palace on top of the rock.

Cameras, Swimwear, Hats, Sun Cream, water and snacks.

Will make lunch stops based on customer preference.

Our Tips:
