Sri Lanka - Getting to know Kandy

A sacred destination for Buddhist pilgrims since the 16th century and now a UNESCO World Heritage site, the ancient city of Kandy used to be capital of Sri Lanka, ruling the island from deep within a green valley in the central hills. The city is vibrant, full of history and culture, and worthy of exploration before you head off into Tea Country or the Cultural Triangle.
