Top areas in Sigiriya
Sigiriya is located in Sri Lanka’s Matale District, and is home to a great deal of the country’s cultural and historical heritage.
The city is connected by bus to Sigiriya’s nearest city of Dambulla, which is in turn connected to bigger cities such as Kandy. Dambulla is a few kilometers outside of Sigiriya, and there are many hotels near the Dambulla Main Bus Station for those who may choose to stay near transportation. Getting around in Sigiriya is best done either by foot or the local three-wheeled taxis known as tuk-tuks.
Sigiriya has a very rich history and is home to heritage sits such as the Sigiriya Citadel, one of the most famous places in this city. Enjoy an entire day of exploring this large formation, perhaps even climb to the summit and take in the views of the rest of the city.
Pidurangala Temple is a unique landmark that serves as not only a place of worship and meditation but also an opportunity for an incredible hike through forests and rocky staircases and cavernous adventures. It’s truly a unique experience for a day spent getting to see and touch some of the oldest rock formations in the area.
