Day two was mostly culture tour visits. We started off by visiting the Sigiriya Rock which is world heritage place and it was built by King Kashyapa. Sigiriya (Lions Rock) is an ancient rock fortress and palace ruin situated in the central Matale District in Sri Lanka. Sigiriya today is a UNESCO listed World Heritage Site. It is one of the best preserved examples of ancient urban planning. It is the most visited historic site in Sri Lanka.
