Kandy

Kandy is the second largest city in Sri Lanka and the gateway to the Central Highlands of Sri Lanka. Lying in the midst of hills, a lake, river, tea plantations and spice gardens, Kandy is one of the most scenic cities in Sri Lanka. Not only is it attractive, it also has significant religious, cultural and historical value and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Kandy was the last capital of the ancient Sinhala kingdom and the final stronghold against colonial rule. It is also one of the most venerable places for Buddhists worldwide, who pay homage to the impressive Temple of the Tooth that enshrines a relic of Lord Buddha’s tooth.
