Sri Lanka: Kandy

Kandy (literally pronounced as Candy) is Sri Lanka’s charming hill capital. Formally known as the capital city of country, this buzzing cultural centre is a recognized UNESCO World Heritage City. Nestled in a large valley, the city is surrounded by low lying hills and buildings parade on the hills forming a concrete crepe-like sight. In the middle of the city is the Mahaweli Lake that connects to the Mahaweli River, Sri Lanka’s largest.

Kandy is a cultural hub with cultural shows of song, dance and fire rituals being staged daily for the curious traveler. Busloads of tourists are drawn to these shows, either by choice or great marketing, I’m not too sure. But I personally am not too keen with culture being staged, so we opted out and decided to walk the streets and observe life as is in Kandy.
