Sigiriya is an ancient city built atop a giant megalithic rock that towers 200 meters above the surrounding landscape.

Designated a cultural World Heritage Site in 1982, Sigiriya continues to be a site of research, study, and speculation as experts try to unveil the mystery and enigma shrouding this historical site.

There is also clear evidence that the many rock shelters and caves in the vicinity were occupied by Buddhist monks from as early as the 3rd century BC. However, Sigiriya is most famous for the period beginning in the 5th century when it was transformed into a palace, fortress, and pleasure garden by King Kashyapa (Kassapa). (477 – 495 CE)
