Time : 7:00 am

COLOMBO / DAMBULLA / SIGIRIYA / COLOMBO

Meet and greet by Seerendiopity tours representative and leave Colombo early in the morning, en-route visit Dambulla cave temple and Sigiriya rock fortress.

 

GOLDEN CAVE TEMPLE DAMBULLA

 

In the 1st century BC, a king of Anuradhapura fled the city due to a South Indian invasion and took refuge in the caves of Dambulla. On recapturing Anuradhapura after 13 years, the king converted the caves into the monastery and gifted it to the Buddhist monks.

 

SIGIRIYA ROCK

 

A Prince of the 5th century who committed patricide made the rock of Sigiriya his hideout in order to stay away from his half-brother who sought vengeance. This prince Kasyappa by name, not only fortified his stronghold but also added to it artistic beauty. (declared as a world heritage site by UNESCO).

 

OPTIONAL – ELEPHANT SAFARI / RIDE

 

The Elephant that was the limousine, Bulldozer, War Tank, Status Symbol, Wealth Asset and Domestic pet in the past is today an element that adds colour to pageants or the gentle Giant that gives pleasure rides.

 

The Elephant Safari Habarana (At Village) has become a highlight event to tourist for its excitement and adventure or even for the “Chance of a Life Time” of riding an Elephant.

 

The Elephant Safari is a ride on an Elephant with a safely secured seat that takes around two hours. The ride takes you on a bund of an ancient lake built for irrigation then through the jungle and even crosses a part of the lake where you could get your feet wet whilst seated on Elephant Back. This is fun never to be missed when in Sri Lanka.
