Escorted Rail Tours to Kandy

Capital of the Sinhalese monarchy

Kandy is Sri Lanka's largest city after Colombo, and has a very rich cultural and political history - often taking centre-stage in the country's events.

The city was the capital of the Sinhalese monarchy (and the country's last pre-colonial capital) and so there are a number of associated buildings - such as the grand Royal Palace - that can still be seen in the city today. Kandy is also a major Buddhist centre; the incredible Temple of the Sacred Tooth, which is one of the world's leading Buddhist sites, is situated here.

Despite being taken by the British in 1815, Kandy still remained very much the hub of the island's cultural life. This is something that is still apparent today, as the city also boasts many beautiful green walks, an array of public gardens and a number of ornate temples. In recognition of this lakeside city's immense significance, Kandy is a designated UNESCO World Heritage site.
