Day 04 – Sigiriya to KandyCity Transfer with Matale Highlands tours
- Breakfast and Checkout from the Hotel in Sigiriya (Around 8.30 AM)
- Proceed to Kandy
- En Route Stopped at Matale Visit to Nalanda Gedige
Nalanda Gedige is an old Dravidian (Pallava era) structure believed to have been built between the 8th to 10th century. At first view, it’s an obviously Hindu temple from the detailed wall and roof architecture, to the little windowless main shrine. However, the site’s erotic tantric sculptures, along with its plain moonstone, point to a more Buddhist origin
- After visit Euphoria Spice and Herbal Gardens at 11:30am.
- Visit to Aluvihara Rock Cave Temple
A religious complex that is believed to mean ‘light temple’ or ‘cave with light’ based on two different beliefs. Aluvihara is most famous as the place of creation of the Buddhist religious script ‘Triptaka’. The stupa is literally built on top of a large rock. Meanwhile, the rock itself is riddled with a cave system. So far 13 caves have been found, with much more buried under old cave-ins. You will have to climb up and through the rock to see the historic and interesting insides of these caves and learn more about the history within. Leave Aluvihara at 3:30 pm.
- After proceed a sunset visit to Sembuwatta Lake located in the Elkaduwa area.
You will get there by 4:30 pm. Sembuwatta is an artificial lake made from a natural spring in the area. It’s famed for its amazing views and natural swimming pool. You will be spending a relaxing hour here, allowing you to take some spectacular photos with the setting sun.
- Leave the lake at 5:30 pm and return to Kandy by 7:00 pm.
