Sigiriya Rock Fortress

A magical ancient rock fortress which was once a majestic Kingdom to King Kashyapa, the Sigiriya Rock is undoubtedly one of the most magnificent and historical archeological sites in Sri Lanka. The sculpted rock is an extraordinary work of art with its beautiful gardens, exquisite frescoes and its amazing hydraulic system.
