The Sigiriya Rock Fortess:One of Sri Lanka’s most awe inspiring spectacles, the jaw dropping Sigiriya rock fortress, is a magnificent palace- cum- fortress sitting atop a 200 m rock outcrop. Built in the 5th century by a tyrant king fleeing exile, the fortress, now rated as the eighth wonder of the world, is an astounding architectural marvel. The stiff climb to the top is one of the Island’s most memorable experiences taking you from the moat, ramparts and water gardens that ring the base up narrow steps with 5th century paintings of heavenly maidens on the rock face. The remains of a pair of giant stone lion’s paws still guard the staircase leading to the summit which was once occupied by a royal palace. Legend has it that King Kashyap who built the fortress confined himself to the palace where he lived with 400 concubines and spent elaborately on turning the fortress into the architectural marvel that it is today. Dambulla CavesDambulla, located near the geographic centre of Sri Lanka is home to a series of ancient temples which were created under an overhanging rock ledge on the top of a hill. Work on the temples is said to have begun in the 1st century and this complex of five shrines includes pre Christian rock inscriptions, 150 sculptures of Lord Buddha, delicately painted deities, vividly coloured frescoes, murals on the walls and ceilings making it the largest antique painted surface in the world.Temple of Tooth KandyThe last stronghold of the Sri Lankan kings, Kandy was the last royal capital before the British acquired complete control of the country. Kandy still remains a sanctuary for traditional Sinhalese culture with a number of important heritage sites. The most notable of these is the Temple of the Tooth (Dalada Maligawa) said to house the sacred tooth relic of the Buddha himself. Every year the tooth relic is paraded around Kandy in Sri Lanka’s most popular festival, the Esala Perahera, a pageant featuring hundreds of dancers, drummers and decorated elephants.For adventure seekers: Two Hour Catamaran Ride in the Negombo sea
