Learn about a UNESCO World Heritage site at Sigiriya Museum, an attraction dedicated to three decades of archaeological research on the ancient rock structure. View a detailed diorama of the site and consider the theory that Sigiriya was once a Buddhist monastery, although most believe a palace or fortress stood here. Admire artifact displays of tools, jewels, sculptures, and even a human skeleton, and do not miss the prehistoric section highlighting the area's inhabitants from thousands of years ago. When you've finished, climb the rock fortress for sweeping views of the area. Plan to see Sigiriya Museum and other attractions that appeal to you using our Sigiriya trip maker.
