Kandy is one of the most romantic destinations in Sri Lanka thanks to maintaining its small-town nature, being surrounded by mountains, ancient architecture and rich heritage. If you are planning to take a walk around the Kandy lake with your beloved here are some things you will see.
The Kandy lake is surrounded by mountains on one side and encircled in tall trees that spill a lemony light over the gently bobbing water. Whatever the time of day that you are visiting you will find that you are protected from the sunlight.
There are vendors selling toys, street food and lottery tickets around the lake as well as plenty of other little knick-knacks. If you’d rather head back to one of the hotels in Kandy such as Earl’s Regency, no one will blame you as food is one of the greatest things about Sri Lanka. Luxury resorts are known for their luxurious meals.
The Temple of the Tooth Relic
The Temple of the Tooth Relic is one of the major reasons why Kandy has been named a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is said to contain a relic of the Buddha and is revered by Buddhists around the world. You can visit it on your way around the lake.
The Remnants of Royalty
Alongside the temple is the royal complex of the last kingdom of Sri Lanka. Learn about the bloody history of the lake and the last king Sri Wickrama Rajasinghe.
