Temple
SmadThe Temple of Tooth Relic is one of the important religious sacred sites in Sri Lanka. Most Sri Lankans who believe in Buddhism come here to hold the Tooth Relic Festival every August. It is a very grand festival, and the tooth of Shakyamuni Buddha is stored in the Buddha Tooth Temple, so many people come here to worship.

Zoo
D59***81Amazing place the elephants seem happy and well looked after. we were able to get up very close to them and feed them a delicious fruit that can be bought at a very cheap price of 250 Rs. After feeding the elephants we were able to follow them to the river for baths! unforgettable day!
Kandy Lake

Lake
多多We had a great time walking by the lake, enjoying the natural beauty, and seeing a wealth of wild animals. There were a variety of birds. Some lizards were more than one meter long, and some wild peacocks and other birds. I don't know why, the white railing by the lake was wrapped in plastic sheeting. Later, I thought it was because of too much bird droppings. Our tour guide took us up the mountain to take a look at Kandy Lake. Let's take a tour here.

The Botanical Garden was built in 1371 AD and used to be the royal garden of the King of Kandy. Nowadays, the garden has planted and collected more than 4,000 species of indigenous and imported plants from Sri Lanka. There are many rare and precious tropical plants. The tropical sun of the equator and the Mediterranean climate in Kandy make the botanical garden like spring all year round, with lush plants and flowers everywhere. bloom.

yangduoduo17The Ceylon Tea Museum is only three kilometers away from Kandi. This museum tells the history of tea in Sri Lanka. This is a museum converted from an old tea factory. It is a five-story building. Tickets cost 100 Sri Lanka rupees for locals and 800 Sri Lanka rupees for foreigners. Here you can see many exhibits about tea. Here you can see the things used by Mr. Yi, the father of Sri Lankan tea. There is also a great exhibit that simulates how the tea factory works. The first tea bag, the first tea dryer and the first tea rolling bed are also on display here. There is a cafe at the top of the museum where you can taste free Sri Lankan tea, which tastes very good. There is a large tea shop next to it, where you can buy a variety of Sri Lankan tea.
Kandy National Museum

Museum
多多The museum not far from the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple tells about the history of the British colonial period. The lights are slightly dim, but there is a little more hazy vicissitudes of life when you walk in, so you can take a tour together. The visit is mainly in English, if you want to visit seriously, it is best to do your homework. From gems to jewels, swords to crowns, the museum is full of well-preserved exhibits from the Kingdom of Kandy. The museum is now relocated in the temple. It is a must-visit for curiosities, new historians and students local.
