Kandy is located at the centre of Sri Lanka 125 km away from Colombo and is generally recognised as the island nation's cultural capital. It is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Kandy was the last kingdom of the Sri Lanka. Since it was conquered by the British only around 1815 you can still see the living traditions. Kandyans are usually proud of their heritage. Since the western elements has played a comparatively little role in the city most Kandyans uphold Buddhist values. Since it is in the cultural triangle the authorities try to retain these values as much as possible.
Take a tour of the Bahirawakanda Monastery, and see how Sri Lankan monks live and worship or visit the Temple of the Tooth lit up at night by thousands of tiny white lights: a magical sight to behold. The temple contains the relic of the tooth of Buddha. Come nighttime, Earl’s Regency Hotel is the perfect place to relax poolside and catch some shut-eye.
