Day Trip to Pidurangala Rock

Although Sigiriya Rock is steeped in history and has some extraordinary features such as the Lion’s Paw, Mirror Wall and Frescoes, the Pidurangala Rock has a much more natural ambiance regardless of housing a temple. It is an overlooked gem by tourists and what makes it magical is the breathtaking view of Sigiriya Rock over the horizon, the magnificence of it standing so tall majestically near the sky. Pidurangala Rock is adjacent to Sigiriya Rock and is a popular spot for sunrises with impressive 360 degree views of all the surrounding valleys and landscapes. Climbing Pidurangala Rock would be a rather intense ascent but well worth it once you reach the top.

      Pidurangala Rock, a 200m high rock which sits adjacent to Sigiriya Rock, also known as Lion Rock, offers some of the best panoramic views in the country. The temple has a few artifacts such as a reclining Buddha statue, which at one time in history was the largest statue of its kind. The rock is blessed by mother nature too, as several species of flora and fauna take refuge in its surroundings, making the hike all the more interesting. Today, the Pidurangala rock is visited for its temple, as well as for its panoramic views of Sigiriya.
