This UNESCO World Heritage site is perhaps Sri Lanka’s most famous attraction, and should not be missed. Perched at the very edge of a towering rock formation is this truly magnificent palace and fortress dating from the 5th century. Water gardens lie at the base of the palace, where steps lead upwards past dozens of beautiful murals to the lofty site of the fort. From the fort, the views are simply astounding.
