Cave
“The Lion Rock of Sigiriya is one of the most famous highlights in Sri Lanka. The photogenic rock is over 200 meters high and is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. On top of this rock stood the palace of King Kasyapa in the 5th century. You can still see the ruins of the palace at the top, from where you have an amazing view over the vast green jungle. The rock owes its name to the lion, carved in stone, which guards the stairs. Now only the legs are left. At the foot of the rock you will find beautifully landscaped gardens, canals, a small museum and countless monkeys roaming around. The climb up, via almost 1900 steps, is tough but well worth it. Halfway up you can make a stop at the well-preserved murals of undressed women and at a smoothly polished mirror wall in which the king could admire himself. Travel tips Sigiriya Visit Sigiriya early in the morning when it is still cool. The climb is even harder in the afternoon heat. Although the late afternoon is a bit quieter in terms of visitors. From Colombo and Kandy you can also book a full day tour to Sigiriya, often including a visit to the Dambulla Cave Temples. Take into account crowds and a fairly hefty entrance fee of approximately $ 30.

Lieu historique
“Dambulla is a “must” during your trip through Sri Lanka, but only because of the famous Dambulla Cave Temples! The caves are on top of a 160 meter high rock, from where a giant golden Buddha is luring you inside. There are 5 different caves that you can visit with around 150 different Buddha statues and murals. The beautiful images vary in size. Many have been here for 2000 years, when King Valagamba sought refuge in the caves and had the temples carved out of it. Dambulla is a popular place of pilgrimage among Sri Lankan Buddhists. The view over the area is also beautiful here.   Travel tips Dambulla – Entrance fees for the Dambulla Cave Temples are approximately € 10 per adult, children are free. – Apart from the cave temples, Dambulla does not have much to offer visitors anymore. We therefore advise you not to stay in this busy city longer than necessary during your holiday in Sri Lanka. Plan your visit to the Dambulla Cave Temples on the outward or return journey to Sigiriya. If you decide to stay in Dambulla, 1 night is enough.   Best hotels Dambulla Budget: New Peacock Resort or Dambulla City Hostel Mid-range: Dambulla Rock Arch Comfortable luxury: Arika Villa or Thilanka Resort & Spa ”

“If you are visiting the cultural and religious sites, it is a must that you wear appropriate clothing. Gents are required to wear trousers to cover their knees or a “sarong” with a shirt or T-shirt. Ladies should ideally wear decent attire such as a trouser or a skirt to cover the knees and a blouse or T-shirt. It may not be advisable for ladies to wear deep necked or a sleeveless top.”
