Learn the fundamentals of Buddhism, its global history, and how it spread through Asia at World Buddhist Museum. Seventeen countries contributed to the establishment of the museum, which features individual exhibits on each of those nations. You can see how the tale of Buddhism differs from country to country, making each tale special in its own right. Follow a fixed route through the museum, reading the information boards as you go, before picking up some affordable souvenirs from the onsite shop. For World Buddhist Museum and beyond, use our Kandy day trip planning website to get the most from your Kandy vacation.
