The city of Kandy in Sri Lanka is surrounded by hills and is blessed with many places to see. Compared to the other parts of the country, Kandy has a unique vibe and that’s something very special about it.
Kandy Lake has been constructed in 1807 by the last Kandyan ruler. The feeling you get when walking around this lake while enjoying a mango pickle (what they call as ‘achcharu’) is simply amazing.
Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic
Also known as ‘Sri DaladaMaigawa’, the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic is one of the holiest places for Buddhists in Sri Lanka. It houses the sacred tooth relic of Lord Buddha.
Peradeniya Botanical Garden
Peradeniya Botanical Garden located on the banks of the Mahaweli River is a beautiful park that has thousands of plants and trees which are nicely maintained.
Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage
Although the Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage is a little outside of Kandy, with a friendly and cooperative Sri Lanka car hire service the likes of Malkey Rent a Car you’ll be able to cover this attraction also in the same tour. Feeding the baby elephants, bathing them and there are many more interesting moments to be explored here.
