What To Expect

Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic
Sri Dalada Maligawa or the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic is a Buddhist temple in the city of Kandy, Sri Lanka. It is located in the royal palace complex of the former Kingdom of Kandy, which houses the relic of the tooth of the Buddha. Since ancient times, the relic has played an important role in local politics because it is believed that whoever holds the relic holds the governance of the country. Kandy was the last capital of the Sri Lankan kings and is a World Heritage Site mainly due to the temple.

The Royal Palace of Kandy (known as Mahawàsala), located to the north of the Temple of the Tooth (Daladà Màligàwa) in Kandy, was the royal residence of the Sri Lankan monarchy of the Kingdom of Kandy in Sri Lanka. The last king to reside in it was King Sri Vikrama Rajasinha (1798-1815). Once part of a large palace complex that included the King's Palace (Raja Wasala), Royal Audience Hall (Magul Maduwa), Queen's Palace (Meda Wasala), King's Harem Quarters (Palle Vahale) and Queen's Bathing Pavilion (Ulpange), together with the Temple of the Tooth (Dalada Maligawa). Adjacent to the Royal Palace is the Victorian era building that until recently housed Kandy High Court.

Kandy View Point
Climb the hill by Kandy Lake to reach Kandy view point and receive a view of the city that cannot be beaten. As a popular tourist spot, the area brings in a large amount of peddlers, though they often sell sub-par items. From the hill, you can enjoy great views over the lake and the city as a whole.

tea factory is not the prettiest or the finest of the tea factories in Sri Lanka, but if you are visiting Kandy, you absolutely must learn about tea, and if you are unable to get further afield into the tea region, then visiting a tea factory in Kandy is essential. There is a firm story to be uncovered here: of how a plant discovered by an Emperor in China 2700 years BC changed the world’s topography, demography and industrial markets irreversibly. Sri Lanka, as one of the world’s largest producers of tea, plays a vastly important role in this history and there’s a high chance that the tea you drink back home begins its life in Sri Lanka. Take a tour through this little factory to learn about the time-consuming production of tea and marvel at heavy machinery left over from British rule at the time of the Industrial Revolution. You will finish off the tour with a tea tasting.
