Sigiriya’s famous Lion Rock rises impressively from the lowlands and is crowned with the ruins of an old palace complex. The “Heavenly Maidens” frescoes showcase creative prowess and provide perceptions into the period’s aesthetics. The Mirror Wall, which reflects the past, and the beautifully planted water gardens add to the magic of Sigiriya. Its historical value as a royal retreat is on par with its strategic and architectural significance as a rock castle. Adventurers who climb Sigiriya are rewarded with stunning views and a strong connection to the island’s history.
