Kandy is the second largest city after Colombo, but is the capital of the Central Province and also a UNESCO Heritage Site. Being a sacred city, Kandy has a range of stunning palaces and temples. Head to the Gadaladadeniya Temple to feast your eyes upon the grand Buddha statue, or visit the Royal Palace, which is the last palace built on the island. Here, visitors can observe the extensive collection of ancient artefacts within the museum that is inside. Not only this, but the city is well-known for the Temple of the Tooth, a Buddhist temple in the royal palace complex of the former Kingdom of Kandy. Hence the name, it is home to the relic of the tooth of Buddha – a perfect place for visitors with spiritual beliefs. Kandy is an interesting city full of stories, culture and history.
