Royal Palace of Kandy, Kandy

3.5
#4 of 12 in Historic Sites in Kandy
Compare the different architectural styles displayed by structures within Royal Palace of Kandy, the former residence of royal families. The palace consisted of several parts, including the king’s palace, the royal audience hall, the temple of the tooth, and the queen’s palace. However, having been burned down and rebuilt several times, little of the original complex remains. Today, you can see the temple of the tooth, which serves as the only entrance, and the royal court. It was believed that the temple holds Buddha’s tooth, granting whoever possesses the relic with the divine blessing to rule.
