Kandy Lake

Kandy Lake is the centerpiece of this most historic of Sri Lanka’s former kingdoms, itself the epicenter of Buddhism and the island’s ancient royal culture. Created by Sri Wickrama Rajasinha, the last Sinhala ruler of Kandy, the lake features a 2,000ft decorative wall and the Royal Summer House on an island in the centre. Close to its northern bank is the Temple of the Tooth, Sri Lanka’s most revered Buddhist shrine, while around the lake are shady paths and places for a stroll or a jog. The lake also serves as the water runway for the seaplane service between Kandy and the capital city of Colombo.
