“To learn about planned and landscaped ancient city in Sri Lanka, a visit to archaeological site Sigiriya is a must. It is an experience worth it,” inform my kin on the last leg of their two-week visit to Sri Lanka.
In Sri Lanka, the spiritual city Kandy and surrounding areas are the most popular tourist destinations because of the holy Buddhist shrines, waterfalls, lakes, tea gardens, archaeological sites and spots with Ramayana connections, they inform.
It is told that in this area, Sigiriya – an ancient rock fortress located in the northern Matale District near the town of Dambulla – is visited by many tourists who believe in educative tourism. The site has a great historical and archaeological significance.
The structures here are indicative of the ancient urban planning. Moreover, the place is also related to King Ravana’s period in the scriptures.
