Located adjacent to the water gardens, stand boulder gardens. Covering nearly the entire western side of Sigiriya rock, these gardens were built by King Kasyapa, in the year 1600. The striking feature of these gardens is the design. Stones are placed in a certain irregular pattern to create an illusion of harmony.

Take a tour within the garden and you will see that most of the boulders have natural shelters beneath them. History says most of these shelters where constructed by Buddhist atheists. Taking a closer look to these shelters, you will find descriptions on the rocks. Another unique feature is the shelters created by the boulders. The shelter prevents the rainwater to flow into the caves. Later when king Kasyapa came into power, he beautified the garden to make it look like a paradise.
