  • A man made lake I believe created by one of their many rulers. It is very picturesque and gives a nice "cool" feel to a hot City. look for the swarms of fish on the lakeside.  more »
  • A man-made lake in the middle of the city of Kandy. Temple of the tooth, also located in lakeside. Say the town, water is so beautiful, but the whole town is directing the coolness.
