Reviewed 10 August 2018 via mobile

We used LocoMole, a newly launched experiential app by the Ministry of Tourism to explore the key points of interests in Dambulla by ourselves using our own mobile devices. The app uses a combination of Storytelling, Suggested To-Dos and Gamification with rich content that are pushed by GPS and AR technology to make exploration this amazing UNESCO World Heritage site both fun and engaging.

We really weren't expecting much when we climbed up to the caves, but found them interesting and glad we made the climb. Good views from the top too!

If you ever go near sigiriya this is a must visit place. Little step climb on the rock to get to this special sacred place.

We walked around the premises, without really stepping inside the temple. We did not see the point, as it semt very similar to the cave temple that we just had visited.

The premises and the structures are beautiful and you will be greeted by monkeys, which is always nice.

We spent around an hour at this attraction, and it was a well spent hour. The writings and drawings on the wall, as well as the statues are interesting. I am glad we took the trip.
