The historic rock of the same name dominates the landscape of World Heritage-listed Sigiriya, where the steep and striking lava plug contains the ruins of an ancient empire. Built by King Kasyapa in the 5th century CE, the citadel that surrounds the main rock and its palace contains all the attractions in Sigiriya, ranging from cave frescoes and royal gardens to the ruins themselves. With an informative onsite museum, Sigiriya introduces visitors to ancient Sri Lankan art, town planning, and history. Start your trip to Sri Lanka by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.
