1. Sigiriya Rock

The spectacular rock fortress of Sigiriya is one of Sri Lanka’s major attractions which were built by King Kassapa 1 (477-95). According to chronicle Mahawansa, he transformed the natural rock in to a heavenly Palace with water gardens, moats, walls and frescoes. The rock summit was replaced with a grandeur palace complex, which was approached through a brick – built tunnel entered through a gaping mouth of a lion built on the plateau. Of particular interest is the gallery of frescoes, which were painted on the sheer rock face. Only 22 out of estimated 500 pictures have remained now, but some of them are really in remarkably good condition.
