The city of Kandy which was once a royal kingdom of ancient Sinhalese kings is today, a beautiful tourist destination surrounded by hills. There are many attractions in this city for you to explore.
Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic
Also known as ‘Sri Dalada Maligawa’, this temple (which has a look of a palace though) is home to the Sacred Tooth Relic of Lord Buddha. This is the same reason why Kandy is considered one of the most blessed towns in the world.
Peradeniya Botanical Gardens
It’s the largest botanical garden in Sri Lanka. Located in Peradeniya (slightly away from Kandy city), this beautiful garden houses many amazing collections of roses and orchids.
Located very close to the Temple of The Tooth Relic, this forest area has been once used by the members of the Royal family. Today, it’s a protected sanctuary and a place where Buddhist monks engage in meditation.
Staying in Kandy
Holidaying in Kandy is a great option for any tourist. Kandy hotels in Sri Lanka the likes of Hotel Topaz will offer you the perfect hospitality services that’ll make you want to revisit this magical destination.
