Declared a World Heritage Cultural Site by UNESCO in 1988, Kandy is the last capital of the Sri Lankan kings. The name "Kandy" conjures visions of splendor and magnificence. Located in the Central Province, Sri Lanka, at a distance of 115 km from Colombo, Kandy is the second largest city in the country. Kandy is surrounded by forested hills and is climatically agreeable due to its 500 meters altitude.

Kandy is the home of The Temple of the Tooth Relic (Sri Dalada Maligawa), one of the most sacred places of worship in the Buddhist world. Kandy has a rich history. Many of the legends, traditions and folklore are still lovingly kept alive. Beautiful lake of Kandy is built by the last Sinhala king Sri Wickrama Rajasinghe in 1798.
