Buddha’s tooth relic -Dhalada Maligawa



Kandy (in Singhalese Maha Nuwara means Great City)
Kandy the city that is surrounded with beautiful mountains, old buildings & countryside, a sacred lake in the middle of the city,
Kandy is also home of the temple of the Buddha’s tooth relic & also prides in Great annual festival (Perehera) that attracts thousands
once a year in the months of July or August.
It was the Capital of the last Sinhalese kingdom after enduring the Portuguese and Dutch, Kandy somehow fell into the hands of
English in 1815. Kandy is a historically rich city.
Kandy is used by many travelers as a base to explore ancient cities & hill country.
