Kandy is an enchanting, vibrant city with a rich history and is of deep religious importance. It was the capital of the last Sinhalese kingdom and today is the cultural center of Sri Lanka and home to its most sacred shrine, the Temple of the Tooth. It is a charming city to explore on foot meandering past the pastel-hued bungalows, sampling wares from the market vendors and then enjoying the oasis of the Kandy Lake. There is a thriving food scene from street stalls to lively restaurants, featuring authentic Kandyan cuisine. Its central inland location is an ideal gateway to the tropical lowlands of the Cultural Triangle in the North and the picturesque Hill Country to the South.
