Sigiriya is located in central Sri Lanka…

It is famous for palace ruins resting on top of a massive rock over 600 ft (200 m) high. The rock itself is a lava plug left over from an ancient long extinct volcano.

Also at the site are an extensive network of gardens, reservoirs and other water structures.

In the interior are ancient Buddhist frescoes (similar to those found at India’s Ajanta Caves, but with a uniquely Sri Lankan style).

Sigiriya is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the best preserved examples of ancient urban planning in the country.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
