Anuradhapura Ancient City & Sigiriya Rock Fortress

First we'll take you to the ancient royal city of Anuradhapura. Anuradhapura is famous for its temples, palace dagobas, well-preserved ruins and the sacred fig tree; Jaya Sri Maha Bodhi. Anuradhapura is still an active temple and place of worship. Both the local population and visitors from abroad come here every weekend to pray and make a special offerings with fruits and lotus flowers.

Then, either in the afternoon or during sunset, we'll go to Sigiriya Rock Fortress or Lion Rock, which is one of the most visited tourist destinations and most recognizable landmarks in Sri Lanka. The remains of a royal palace sit on top of the 200 meter high rock overlooking the ancient fortress city.
