Kandy, where hills meet heritage, is surely a hidden gem waiting to be explored. Known as the historical capital of Sri Lanka, Kandy has many attractions and landmarks that deserve a visit at least once in your lifetime.
Temple of the Tooth
True to its name, the Temple of the Tooth houses the Sacred Tooth Relic, believed to have come from Lord Buddha. For devoted Buddhists and tourists alike, it is undoubtedly one of the places you have to visit once in your lifetime. Experience its sacredness for yourself.
Did you know that the acclaimed Ceylon tea comes from Sri Lanka? Ranking #4 in the world for tea production, Sri Lanka is famous for its aromatic tea, so it is definitely worthwhile to visit one of the country’s plantations and spend the afternoon relaxing with a tea-sampling session!
Artificial but authentically beautiful, the Bogambara Lake, also known as Kandy Lake, is located in the heart of the city and perfect for a little stroll or jog after your afternoon tea-sampling. Only here can you experience the true definition of an urban forest, with beautiful views of both town and jungle.
Wrap up the day with an energetic Kandyan Dance and Drum performance, a colourful display of music, theatrics and acrobatics! This is where you will get to truly experience the ancient local culture passed on from generation to generation. Totally worth the watch!
