Kandy is a large city in central Sri Lanka which is surrounded by mountains and is home to many of Sri Lanka’s tea plantations. The hill capital of Sri Lanka is a beautiful place to relax and absorb the spiritual side to Sri Lanka. Whilst in Kandy we recommend walking tours of the hills, heading into the city and visiting a tea plantation.

Day 3

Discovering Central Sri Lanka

Enjoy another relaxing day in Kandy, the last royal capital of Sri Lanka. If you spent the previous day exploring the outskirts of the city and visiting a tea plantation, why not head into the city to visit the Temple of Tooth? The Temple of The Sacred Tooth Relic is Buddhist temple located in the royal palace complex of the former Kingdom of Kandy. This temple is not to be missed! We recommend visiting the temple for the dawn or evening daily worships.
