Royal Palace of Kandy, Kandy

(3.6/5 based on 130+ 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.

  • People who bought tickets to the Temple of the tooth, and then. You don't need to buy another ticket, walk to the rear Tower tooth to the Imperial Palace grounds.

  • The Royal Palace is part of the impressive complex where also the Temple of the tooth, the audience hall, the Raja Tusker and archaeological museum are located. Well worth to spend some time here.

  • The Royal Palace is in the precincts of the Temple of the tooth Budhova. Very nice wood work, a quiet place. It's an open space, then wait the birds here in the rafters, watch out for the "ptačince".
