Distance from Sigiriya – 1.1 km (3 minutes)
Sigiri Apsara, also known as Sigiriya Frescoes, are wall art and colourful paintings found inside a picture gallery in the Sigiriya Rock. The images depict ladies in various postures with some carrying flowers with them. The true identity of these females are not known. Some believe these to be the wives of the kings while others believe they are women taking part in religious observances held at the time. The Sigiriya Frescoes bear resemblance to the paintings found at Ajanta Caves in India. Only few such paintings are left today and these are being protected in the best possible manner.
