In the morning took the bus from Sigiriya to Dambulla and went to the famous Cave Temples, Map Location: 7.855904, 80.64678 .
The bus station, 7.870392, 80.651412, is a few kilometers from the temple entry so I took a tuk-tuk for 150 LKR. It's off of the main road and down a dirt road.
The caves are at the top of a hill with steps up to the entrance. There are four or five caves filled with murals and buddhas of all sizes.
It is possible to go down a different way to the Golden Temple which has a big outdoor Buddha and is on the main road.
Buses go back and forth between Dambulla and Sigiriya and Kandy every hour or so it's an connection.
Back in Sigiriya I rented a cheap bike and took a nice long ride out on the little dirt roads. I rode for about two hours around Lion's Peak and Pedurangula and returned on the bigger road that goes along the elephant fence on the boundary of Minneriya National Park.
