What To Expect

Sigiriya The Ancient Rock Fortress
The ultimate icon of Sri Lanka’s historic past, the giant rock fortress of Sigiriya arises high above the flat landscape, surrounded by jungle on all sides.

A testimony to the inventiveness of the ancient civilizations of the land, the once impenetrable stronghold of King Kassapa, ‘Sihagiri’ or Lion’s Rock as it was called then, is considered to be the 8th wonder of the world today. The feats of artistry, architecture and engineering at Sigiriya continue to impress visitors with their utter magnificence, even thousands of years on. Intricately landscaped pleasure gardens sprawl out below the rock, giant lion paws hewn in stone mark the entrance to the fortress at its foot, a highly polished mirror wall still carries the scrawled writings of ancient poets. A somewhat treacherous climb up the rock is well worth it to see the impressive ruins of a once glorious city at the summit – 370m high. And the 360 degree view from the top is equally astounding. Even more amazing are the exquisite frescoes painted on to the sheer rock face – their beauty still unmarred despite the trials of time and attempts at destruction. The village and its surrounding areas also offer plenty of interest both historical and natural for those willing to explore.

Dambulla Cave Temple
The largest and the best preserved cave monastery in the island, Dambulla is a sacred pilgrimage site for followers of Buddhism for no less than 22 centuries.

A cave complex comprising five sanctuaries, they were already established as important monasteries as far back as the 3rd century BC. At first, the caves were a refuge for King Valagambahu in 1st century BC. Returning from exile to his throne at Anuradhapura, he turned the caves into a magnificent temple for the monks who sheltered him. Protected and enhanced by successive kings it has continued to be a place of great religious significance up to today. The cave complex serves as one extended Buddhist image house. Its rock ceiling and interior walls are covered with intricate murals – an area of 2,100 sq metres with some of the frescos dating back over 2,000 years. The paintings depict Buddhist mythology, and tales of Buddha's previous births. This cave complex has the largest number of Buddha statues housed in one place including a reclining Buddha figure carved out of the rock, 14 meters long; and 157 equally impressive statues of Lord Buddha, ancient kings, gods and goddesses.
