Ancient Cities

The Ancient Cities are a fascinating region, full of remnants of a civilisation over 2500 years old. During the golden age of the Sinhalese civilisation it was named 'Rajarata', the land of the kings. The first city to be built was Anuradhapura, followed by the rock fortress at Sigiriya and the medieval Polonnaruwa.

Ancient Cities

Lots of work has been done over the last 100 years to push back the jungle that’s held these sights secret for so long. Now, visitors can see the full extent of these ancient relics, including sacred temples, palaces, rock carvings, gardens and monasteries.
