Take a relaxing stroll along Kandy Lake, an artificial body of water surrounded by the Kandy hills and overlooked by a famous temple, said to house the tooth of Buddha. The lake was created in 1807 by the last king of Kandy, and features a small island in the middle, supposedly used as the king’s private bathing spot. Take a boat ride or a walk around the lake perimeter to enjoy the views of the city and the picturesque natural setting.

It is located in the middle of the Kandy city and very beautiful and eye catching. It has a better surrounding to make a walk around the lake. Temple of the tooth relic is located near the lake in a one side of lake.
Beautiful lake right at the center of Kandy city. It is an artificial lake with walking space. Eye catching sceneric mountain behind the lake. The Sacred Tooth Temple is adjacent to the lake. The nearby road is busy with people and road traffic. Many cine shooting and new wed couple with cultural costume take photo
