Sigiriya is a small town situated in the Central region of the Island.

Famed for the Sigiriya Rock & Citadel, Once the Kingdom of the great King Kashyappa (473 -496 AD)

This rock which stands over 250M high, and is famed for its Paintings, irrigation works, ancient rooms, mirror walls, is a definite must see when visiting Sri lanka.

The Climb to the top of the Rock and descend generally takes about 2 -3 Hours yet is not too harder climb as the steps are not too steep.
