Many people call Kandy the true heart of Sri Lanka due to it's
historic importance for the Sinhala culture and it's high status within Buddhism
with the Dalada Maligawa temple.
Besides this important religious
impact the amazing city of Kandy has a lot to offer during the daytime and visitors
should better calculate a few days in the beautiful cool green mountains to explore
and enjoy some truly unique moments and places.
August is a wonderful
time for a visit with the giant Perehara Festival and frequent exceptional sunsets.
