sigiriyaTechnology has been harnessed for the issuance of tourist tickets under the Central Cultural Fund. As the first stage, on 11th February 2017 Hon. Akila Viraj Kariyawasam, the Minister of Education initiated the move from the Sigiriya Project.

The main objective of this exercise is to enable tourists to purchase their tickets with the least inconvenience to them. Consequently, both local and foreign tourists could purchase their tickets valid for three months from the date of purchase through the Internet. With the incorporation of the latest technology in sites of cultural interest, foreigners intending to visit the site now could purchase their tickets online prior to their arrival in the country. The Information and Communication Technology Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA) has been kind enough to give the technical assistance in this regard.
