After breakfast leave for Sigiriya. En route visit Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage, established in 1975, commenced with seven orphans. Today some of these orphans enjoy the fortune of seeing their grandchildren born in the same location.
Afterward, leave for Sigiriya, visit the Sigiriya Rock Fortress. Rightly called a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the unofficial 8th world wonder, Sigiriya is a monument that provides one of the most dramatic sceneries in all of Sri Lanka overlooking acres of green jungles. The giant lion paws at the summit leads to the top of the cairn, a palace in the sky. As you step between the lion paws, imagine yourself entering the wide-open mouth of a lion, the carving hewn out of the face of Sigiriya, no more to be seen after so many centuries. The palace soon became a courtly paradise of elegant pavilions set amid gardens and pools. To this day the most advanced technological apparatus and scientists are left baffled of the mechanics behind the hydraulic systems of the ponds at the water gardens still functioning perfectly. Could it be a valve through the interior of the rock or an act of God? The mystery still remains.
The climb to the top could be weary but the sight it offers is worth the sweat. Acres and acres of greenery and the clear blue sky above you will be breath taking! For the old and not so strong, the gardens and ponds at the summit of the rocky boulder would offer a satisfying sight as well.

After the breakfast visit Polonnaruwa, the next majestic city in 11th Century BC, after Anuradhapura.
