Day-3

                Sigiriya (World Heritage site)

Sigiriya Rock Fortress, considered one of the amazing wonders of the Ancient World that truly needs to be witnessed to be believed. Located in the interior of Sri Lanka and The magnificent rock fortress of Sigiriya is visible for miles from all directions and dominates the surrounding plain. Sigiriya which was an ancient castle built by King Kasyapa during the 5th century AD is both a palace and fortress. The climb up Sigiriya is a challenge and takes about 90 minutes. You will pass by many peculiar parts of the fortress like The Mirror Wall, world famous Sigiriya Frescoes and the entrance to the Lion Gate. The ruins of this 5th century fortress (declared a World Heritage Site in 1982) are one of Sri Lanka’s major attractions, a stu-pendous sight to behold and a feat of consummate engineering skill. A switchback series of steps (sometimes very steep and somewhat precarious) ascends to the top and half-way up, tucked beneath a sheltering overhang of rock, are the famous Sigiriya Damsels. These frescoes, their ancient colours still glowing, once covered an area of some 140 metres in length and are the only ancient non-religious paintings to have survived into modern times. On arriving at the summit (200m) we are presented with some magnificent views of the surrounding country, as well as the remains of what is left of the palace of King Kassapa.
