    Sigiriya The Ancient Rock Fortress
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    A UNESCO World Heritage Site and sometimes known as the 8th wonder of the world, the Sigiriya Rock Fortress is a timeless example of just one of the many remnants of the great kingdoms that existed within Sri Lanka. Boasting a unique architecture, one of the oldest landscaped gardens in the world, frescoes that depict a society long gone and also a mirror wall that chronicles the stories of many travellers that made the climb to the fabled rock. Sigiriya is, arguably, considered the most visited place in Sri Lanka due to its historical and cultural significance. The entrance to the rock fortress takes you through one of the oldest landscaped gardens in the world that has not changed since its construction in the 5th century CE with many canals, locks, lakes and fountains that sustain the beauty of it. The rock fortress showcases architectural ingenuity since the fortress is, in fact, built by using the natural rock plateau as the foundations and is elaborately decorated with notable features such as the lion’s paws that was carved out of the granite rock. The stone stairway that leads to the ruined royal palace that belonged to King Kassapa of the Anuradhapura kingdom (5th century CE) on top of the granite rock still serves as the main entrance since ancient times and takes you through a myriad of unique archaeological features. The frescoes depicting religious rituals and the mirror wall filled with literature further showcase the cultural significance of the country due to its elaborate depiction of the society that existed during the 5th century CE Anuradhapura kingdom and how the society was perceived by outsiders.
