It is 488 metres above sea level and is the most visited place in Sri Lanka. Kandy is classed as a World Heritage City by UNESCO and is surrounded by hills. It has a pleasant climate throughout the year and is much more comfortable than the heat of Colombo or the southern towns.
Kandy is 100km (62miles) north east of Colombo and although the town lacks an airport, there are a number of buses and trains running between the two destinations.
Kandy is the venue of the Esala Perahera, easily the most colourful pageant in Asia, held in July/August each year, in honour of the tooth relic of the lord Buddha. The torch-lit streets are filled with elephants and costumed dancers as they pay homage to the casket of the sacred tooth relic carried by the king of the elephants. The procession moves along the streets for seven consecutive nights and concludes on the day of the August full moon.
The tooth relic is housed in a golden temple known as the \\\'Dalada Maligawa\\\'. It is renowned for its architecture and paintings and stands testimony to the generosity of the kings and other members of royalty who patronised the temple through the years to enhance its beauty and history.
Other attractions in Kandy include; walking round the large and wonderful botanical garden, watching elephants bathing, taking in an evening show of Kandyan dancing and traditional fire walking, to say nothing of the museums, historical buildings, and the lovely views of the mountains and the lake. The Kandyan areas are where the crafts of the Sinhalese have been kept alive. From the art of mat weaving at Dumbara, to the silver craftsmen of Nattaranpotha, and wood carvers of Embekke, the Kandyan craftsmen produce the exquisite material which makes up the most sought after souvenirs of Sri Lanka.
Kandy is 45 minutes drive away from the world famous Victoria Golf Club and other outdoor activities are within easy reach such as white water rafting and hiking.
