”This is a powerful spiritual experience, being challenged both by the powerful imagery of the rock and the physical challenge of climbing to the top of the world where the soul of Sri Lanka can be felt”.
“Monuments, history, gardens, galleries, serenity, nature can all be seen at Sigiriya. It is definitely a jewel and the heart of Sri Lanka. Time stops there and you have the chance to reflect.”
“The history at Sigiriya is very unique. Building the city and the rock is fascinating and of the same stature and significance as the Pyramids in Giza or other great historic monuments of the world. It is really a masterpiece and “a must see” for anyone in their life – time”.
- Dr. Taleb Rifai, Secretary General, United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO)
