Kandy, the last Kingdom of our island and an iconic citadel in its own right, where once great kings ruled and where nature, art and architecture flourished. This is the Capital of the hill country steeped in cultural heritage and natural beauty, set amidst historic monuments, enchanting forests, great rivers and breath-taking vistas of picturesque mountains and valleys. There is something about the city of Kandy today that has a certain aura of the past that still resonates in every nook and cranny of this quaint city of old-world charm.
There’s plenty of things to see and do around here- starting from the boat ride down the Mahaweli River, to Adam’s Peak, Horton Plains, Knuckles Mountain Range, Udawattakale Forest, Tea factories and plantations, a visit to the Brass Crafter, The Temple of Tooth Relic, to the city area that’s lined with gemstones shops. Kandy is a rich mix of nature and culture.
