Inspirock Rating:
3.7/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Calm place to relax your mind. At the middle of Sri Dalada Maligawa you find this Magul Maduwa. It is very natural 
  • The Royal Palace of Kandy is located in the inside of the complex where is also the Sri Dalada Maligawa, that is a visit essential for all those tourists that travel the country. Probably the most visited Temple of all Sri Lanka. You must keep in mind that it is one of the strictest in terms of clothing and therefore must carry the appropriate clothing to avoid problems with access. We had to buy several large scarves to enter completely covered (even with a very puff jacket, with large holes, prevent you entry). To visit the Royal Palace of Kandy should pay 1000 rupees per person more gratuity or what they charge you for letting the shoes. This ticket allows you to visit all the buildings in the complex of the temple, the Sri Dalada Maligawa (the Temple of the tooth of Buddha) and everyone else. The building of the Palace does not have much to highlight and if it were not for the Temple of the tooth of Buddha nobody would go to visit him, although it currently hostel a museum. Certainly it is not the main attraction of Kandy, although once in the complex, his visit will not remove you long time. Greetings to all travelers.

  • Beautiful historical landmark. As everywhere in Sri Lanka-Buddha where you look. Just admission to the temple Budhova of the tooth. In the amount of buildings is a bit of a problem to navigate. So be careful, let her Miss.
