Best Places to Visit in Kandy Sri Lanka – The blissful city of the ‘Pearl’!

Sri Lanka is one of the most promising destinations to visit for all travellers alike. The more you explore this island country, the more you will be mesmerized by its people, culture and its geography. Here is everything we can think of to do in Kandy, Sri Lanka's sacred city of the Tooth Relic!


The temple of the tooth relic

Known for its spirituality and laid-back charm, the root of Kandy city's fame traces back to this majestic establishment; the Sacred Temple of the Tooth Relic-a temple said to host a tooth relic of the late Lord Buddha, the preacher of the philosophy 'Buddhism'. This ancient-palace temple is often crowded with masses of devotees dressed in soothing white and light hued garments visiting the temple to pay homage to the tooth relic of Lord Buddha. The temple is not only appreciated for its holy value, but also for its impeccable architecture and brilliant wooden carvings.


Circle the Kandy Lake

Hands down one of the top Kandy attractions is the Kandy Lake. This man-made lake in existence since the early 1800s is famous for a flurry of idyllic spots and historical structures around it. The romantic ambience it somehow brings to the table is ideal for a mini-stop for a couple exploring the city of Kandy. If you are one that would like to wake up to a view so special like that of the Kandy lake, make sure to look around for such lodging facility providers such as Kings Pavillion.


Knuckles Mountain Range

This hilly formation is one that truly seizes to amaze its visitors at how incredibly well it has been moulded. Resembling the shape of a folded 'knuckle' this is one of the most scenic landmarks of Kandy. It is located towards the Northern End of Sri Lankan highlands and makes for an excellent adventure what with it being a famous destination for trekking and camping. Its sprawling grasslands, jagged peaks gushing waterfalls as well as sprinkling streams are the simplest joy of life one could imagine.


Peradeniya Royal Botanical Garden

This masterpiece of landscape spans over 60 hectares is pure bliss, to say the least. Amidst its regal collection of more than 4000 species of plant scattered across the area, its luscious collection of colourful orchids standout! Its' perfectly manicured grass shaded with the cooling grace of massive trees makes a picnic feel like magic. Or even a stroll across these beauties with your significant other.


Horton Plains National Park

Should you be a fan of the mystical beauty of nature, you sure will be enchanted by the Horton Plains National Park. Shadowed by two of Sri Lanka's biggest mountains namely Kirigalpotta and Totapola, this place is wuite popularly known as 'The World's End' considering its surprisingly formed waterfall, misty lakes and plethora of flora and fauna found here. The views across the plain are simply unreal, especially during the early hours of the day. The sight of far-away mountains clearing out of the misty clouds and the streaks of sunlight sneaking in between the pillow-like clouds is something you are going to want to not only view, but also re-live!
