Little bit about Kandy

Kandy is a highly populous city in the center of the country with some interesting attractions that are worth a visit. The Temple of the Tooth in Kandy which is said to house the sacred tooth relic of Lord Buddha is another revered place for devotees. Tourists have much to see at this beautiful temple which lies alongside one of Sri Lanka’s most well known landmarks - the Kandy Lake. During July/August this temple hosts the grand Esala Perahera which is an extremely colourful parade along the street of Kandy featuring traditional dancers, whip lashers, fire stuntmen, acrobats and colourfully adorned elephants. This is a once in a lifetime experience which draws visitors from all over the world to witness a truly Sri Lankan sacred pageant.

Sacred City of Kandy is one of the eight UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Sri Lanka.
