Kandy


Nestled in the green hills of Sri Lanka, Kandy is one of the most visited destinations in the country. The city attracts Buddhist pilgrims from around the world to admire the relic of the Buddha tooth preserved in the temple of the same name, or in Sinhalese, Sri Dalada Maligawa. Its mild climate allows travelers to wander the streets of the city where small merchants swarm, to visit the sacred temple of the tooth of Buddha (attention: shorts, skirt and dress are forbidden in the temple, it will be necessary to clothe you properly if you want to visit it) and go around Kandy Lake to admire the different varieties of trees, flowers and birds.

The tea plantations around Kandy are also essential places to visit, do not hesitate to book a local guide who will make you live an unforgettable experience!

Tip: If your stay in Sri Lanka is during August, do not miss the elephant procession in Kandy! See also our article on this subject in the section "Events": http://sri-lanka-immobilier.com/articles- and-events / esalaperahera.html
