Kandy

Overview

Nestled amidst the emerald hills of central Sri Lanka, Kandy is a city that exudes charm, culture, and a deep sense of history. Known as the last royal capital of the island, Kandy holds a special place in the hearts of both locals and travelers alike.

At the heart of Kandy lies the sacred Temple of the Tooth Relic (Sri Dalada Maligawa), a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most revered Buddhist temples in the world. Here, the sacred tooth relic of Lord Buddha is enshrined, and it draws pilgrims and visitors from all corners of the globe. The temple’s magnificent architecture and the rhythmic rituals that take place daily provide a unique and spiritual experience.

Kandy Lake, an artificial lake created in the heart of the city in the early 19th century, is a tranquil oasis surrounded by lush greenery. A leisurely walk along its shores allows you to take in the serene beauty of Kandy and perhaps spot a monitor lizard or two.

The city is also known for its vibrant cultural performances, with traditional Kandyan dance and drumming displays that showcase the rich heritage of the region. These performances offer a glimpse into the lively traditions that have been passed down through generations.

Kandy’s lush botanical gardens, the Peradeniya Royal Botanic Gardens, are a haven for nature lovers. Home to a vast collection of tropical plants, giant bamboo, orchids, and more, it’s a perfect place for a peaceful stroll.

Kandy’s picturesque setting, nestled amidst rolling hills and tea plantations, provides a cool and pleasant climate. The city’s blend of history, spirituality, and natural beauty makes it a captivating destination that leaves a lasting impression on those who visit. Whether you’re exploring its historic sites, sipping tea overlooking the green hills, or immersing yourself in its vibrant culture, Kandy invites you to experience the essence of Sri Lanka in all its splendor.
