Kandy Lake, Kandy

(3.4/5 based on 2,400+ reviews on the web)
Take a relaxing stroll along Kandy Lake, an artificial body of water surrounded by the Kandy hills and overlooked by a famous temple, said to house the tooth of Buddha. The lake was created in 1807 by the last king of Kandy, and features a small island in the middle, supposedly used as the king’s private bathing spot. Take a boat ride or a walk around the lake perimeter to enjoy the views of the city and the picturesque natural setting.

  • A trip around the Lake is a challenge. Especially if the twilight in falls, then go all crows and that there are a lot in the trees and they do their needs. The Lake is beautiful but can be better maintained much waste in the water. Too bad is that. In the middle of the Lake is the Pavilion of the King. Which can be reached via a tunnel. That money also for the bath house are they renovating this unfortunately

  • This Lake is no tourist attraction. The Bank is also not be nicely designed. Then rather stroll through the streets and browse the stores
