What's So Special about Kandy?

Kandy is also famous for its artificial lake which was built in 1807 by the last king of Sri Lanka – Sri Wickrama Rajasinha. Its purpose is simply to beautify the city. Centuries later, you will still find Kandyans, tourists and visitors alike taking slow walks around the lake as the sun sets over the city. Street food vendors, around the lake, sell any amount of sweet and savoury treats for those enjoying the lake.
