What We Love About Kandy

Right at the heart of Sri Lanka is Kandy, an important cultural and religious center of the country. Home to Sri Lanka’s most holy relic, the Buddha tooth, Kandy is naturally famous for its impressive Temple of the Tooth. Aside from that, Kandy is also home to many beautiful nature spots, such as tropical forests, tea plantations, and spice gardens.
