All about the trip
Explore the architecture, history and ancient paintings on this day tour from Negombo. Just an hour driving from the city, two amazing historical sites can be found: Sigiriya and Dambulla.
Sigiriya or Sinhagiri is an ancient rock fortress. It is located in the northern Matale District near the town of Dambulla in central Sri Lanka. There are several gates to get to the inner city and the most prominent is the Western entrance. From the summit of the rock, the land areas up to distances of tens of miles can be seen. It made it hard for the enemy to make a surprise attack on the kingdom. That is why king Kashyapa made this magnificent creation. He also builds an amazing water garden which faces west looking from the top terrace of the rock. The world famous frescoes of the “heavenly maidens” are painted on the western face.
Our next stop is Dambulla cave temples also known as the Golden Temple of Dambulla. It is a World Heritage Site in Sri Lanka. This site is situated 148 kilometers east of Colombo and 72 kilometers north of Kandy. It is home to the world’s most acclaimed cave complex of magnificent Buddha images and rock paintings of vivid colors and shapes. It has been constructed and painted around the 2nd century BC, during Anuradhapura era. Then the process continued up to the Kandyan era in the 18th century, thus forming an unbroken line of history and painting styles of Sri Lanka through 2500 years.What Wikipedia Says
