Sigiriya Rock Fortress
A UNESCO World Heritage site Sigiriya, the legendary Lion rock is one of the best preserved examples of ancient urban planning. The fortress of King Kashyapa (477-475 CE) consists of an ancient citadel built on top of the rock, a mid level terrace, mirror wall with its frescoes, lower palaces, water gardens, moats and ramparts some of which are still in use. Nestled in lush greenery lies our hotel near Sigiriya offering easy access to this man-made wonder.
Sigiriya is famous for:
- Frescoes in the caves
- Ancient verses carved on the mirrored wall
- Still functional water gardens.
- The legend of the King Kashyapa
