Considered one of the most serene and idyllic locations in Sri Lanka, Kandy arrives as Sri Lanka’s second largest city and home to all the marvels of nature. Be it the Bogambara Lake that is set in the heart of the city, the iconic tooth relic of the Buddha that reflects Buddhist culture in all its majesty or the botanical gardens which house diverse flora, some of which are over a century old, the city set on a plateau is truly magnificence personified.
