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.

  • Visited the Beautiful Lake and Buddha's Relic Temple nearby. If you love architecture and ancient designs then don't miss this place. Very nicely decorated along with the history.
