Sri Lanka sigiriya

Sigiriya is one of Sri Lanka’s main attractions, a natural rock formation that erupts from the surrounding forest and topped with an ancient fortress.

The museum, located near the ticket booth, offers information about the site as well as a diorama of the monument and reproductions of the ancient frescoes.
