Built in the 5th century, it was commissioned by King Dhatusena, and one of the specialities of this statue is the robe Buddha wears. Carved intricately, it is truly a visual treat. Take a break on the Kalawewa bund, and move on to Sigiriya for the night.

Today the ancient city remains one of the best-planned archaeological sites in the country, and has been declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO. We spend the sunset hours at Minneriya, and head back to the hotel for the night.
