Kandy is the last capital of Sri Lanka before British rule. This city is rich in cultural and historical heritage in each corner. The best way to explore the beautiful city, surrounded by lush greenery, is by taking a walk exploring its highlights and listening to the treasure trove of stories from its glorious past.
Start the tour at the Kandy Lake. Proceed to the British Garrison Cemetery, zooming past the Sacred Temple of the Tooth, situated in the Royal Palace Complex. Enjoy the fascinating stories that unfold; re-live what may have happened in the intriguing Royal Empire under its last independent monarchy, before it came under British rule in 1815. Experience the religious diversity of the island from the phenomenal temple grounds to an elegant church, effervescent kovil and past a local mosque.
Stop for a refreshing beverage at the iconic Empire Café and then end the walk with a visit to the colourful street market, which offers everything from aromatic spices to clothes and various knick-knacks.
