Kandy Day Tour

Kandy Hidden away amid precipitous green hills at the heart of the island, KANDY is Sri Lanka’s second city and undisputed cultural capital of the island, home to the Temple of the Tooth, the country’s most important religious shrine, and the Esala Perahera, its most exuberant festival. last independent bastion of the Sinhalese, the Kingdom of Kandy clung onto its freedom long after the rest of the island had fallen to the Portuguese and Dutch, preserving its own customs and culture which live on today in its unique music, dance and architecture. city maintains a somewhat aristocratic air, with its graceful old Kandyan and colonial buildings, scenic highland setting and pleasantly temperate climate. And although modern Kandy has begun to sprawl considerably, the twisted topography of the surrounding hills and the lake at its center ensure that the city hasn’t yet overwhelmed its scenic setting, and it preserves at its heart a modest grid of narrow, low-rise streets which, despite the crowds of people and traffic, retains surprisingly small-town atmosphere.
