SIGIRIYA AND DAMBULLA DAY TOUR
More or less at the heart of the Cultural Triangle, the busy little town of DAMBULLA is famous for its remarkable cave temples: five magical, dimly lit grottoes crammed with statues and decorated with exquisite murals, offering a picture-perfect snapshot of Sinhalese Buddhist art at its finest.
Around 15km northeast of Dambulla, the spectacular citadel of SIGIRIYA rises sheer and impregnable out of the plains of the dry zone, sitting atop a huge outcrop of gneiss rock towering 200m above the surrounding countryside. shortest-lived but the most extraordinary of all Sri Lanka’s medieval capitals, Sigiriya (“Lion Rock”) was declared a World Heritage Site in 1982 and is the country’s most memorable single attraction — a remarkable archeological site made unforgettable by its dramatic setting.
