Kandy, Sri Lanka


Kandy, Sri Lanka's hill capital is sometimes acclaimed as the most beautiful city in the island. Situated just 100 kms north east of Colombo, the city of Kandy lies at an altitude of 488.6 meters (1629 feet) above sea level in the center of the island. It is surrounded by a range of mountains and enjoys a cooler climate than most cities in Sri Lanka.


The city's history dates back to the 5th cent. B.C. Kandy was temporarily occupied by the Portuguese (16th century) and the Dutch (18th century) but as a stronghold, it remained free until 1815, when the British captured it and exiled the last king to India. A palace, an art museum, and a library provide you a glimpse of the royal period.


The main part of the city overlooks a scenic artificial lake built by the last king of Kandy in 1806. Near the lake is the Temple of the Tooth, said to house one of Buddha's teeth. The relic, has made Kandy a pilgrimage and tourist attraction especially at the annual Esala Perahera pageant. The event marks one of the most spectacular pageants in Sri Lanka, the Kandy Perahera.
