Kandy - මහනුවර

Kandy, at an altitude of 500m is the cultural centre of Sri Lanka. Kandy was the capital of the last Singhalese kingdom. A relaxed hill station, once captured by the British invaders. Dominated by its lake and the Temple of the Tooth which houses Sri Lanka's most sacred relic The Tooth of Lord Buddha. Kandy's main attraction is the Dalada Maligawa, the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic of the Buddha, the founder of Buddhism. Brought to Sri Lanka in the 4th c. A.D., the sacred relic has ever since been the symbol of sovereignty for its rulers and always enshrined in great splendour. Kandy's Dalada Maligawa is a magnificently adorned shrine, with decorative walls, moat, turrets, golden roof and fine wood-work and its 16th - 19th century ambience vividly alive. Three religious services (referred to as 'poojas') with traditional music, held daily at dawn, mid-day and in the evening, can be viewed by visitors. (Distance From Colombo : 115 km)
