The murals cover an area of 2,100 square metres (23,000 sq ft.) Depictions on the walls of the caves include the temptation by the demon Mara, and Buddha’s first sermon.

CLIMBING SIGIRIYA ROCK FORTRESS : Sigiriya Day Tour
“Sigiriya today is a UNESCO listed World Heritage Site. It is one of the best preserved examples of ancient urban planning. Explore the ancient city of Sigiriya for yourself.”
An Experience You’ll Never Forget. Climbing to the top of Sigiriya Rock is very strenuous but not difficult.
Sigiriya is famous for its palace ruins on top of a massive 200 meter high rock surrounded by the remains of an extensive network of gardens, reservoirs and other structures. The rock itself is a lava plug left over from an ancient long extinct volcano. It is also renowned for its ancient paintings (frescoes), which are similar to those found at Ajanta Caves in India. It is generally agreed, however, that the Sigiriya Frescoes exhibit a uniquely Sri Lankan style.
After an amazing adventure travel experience , you will be returned back to Kandy.
