Sigiriya is believed to be the site of an ancient kingdom and the palace of King Kasyapa is said to have ruled over the surrounding area, from atop the Sigiriya Rock. Once upon a time, the entrance to the inner citadel took the shape of a gaping lion’s head, but the winds have eroded this sculpture to its paws. This awe-inspiring rock fortress is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If you’re planning a trip to see this dramatic landmark in person, these are some great Airbnb vacation rentals located nearby that will make the excursion extra convenient.

1. Sigiriya village homestay (from USD 10)

Two guest rooms are available at this lovely homestay for a very reasonable price. Located in a quiet neighborhood, you’ll be insulated from the bustle of the city but still within close proximity of some small, locally-owned shops. Should you wish to travel further to attractions like the Sigiriya Rock, your host can also arrange for tuk-tuk transport.

The property is well maintained, with two comfy queen-sized beds and traditional wood furnishings. Air-conditioning in the bedroom also ensures you have a good night’s rest.
