Take a relaxing stroll along Kandy Lake, an artificial body of water surrounded by the Kandy hills and overlooked by a famous temple, said to house the tooth of Buddha. The lake was created in 1807 by the last king of Kandy, and features a small island in the middle, supposedly used as the king’s private bathing spot. Take a boat ride or a walk around the lake perimeter to enjoy the views of the city and the picturesque natural setting.

2018年2月キャンディに行きました。古都ということでブッダの歯を祭る寺院があり、中心にはキャンディ湖があります。警官が朝、湖の魚に餌やり（パン）してたんですが、カレーパンでした（笑）さすがインド圏、カレーに余念がない。具とろけそう（笑） 夕方の湖がキレイでした。キャンディは大きめの街というのもあり、見どころが多かった。個人的には朝の学生たちの通学風景とか、道歩きが良かった。お酒を出す店もボソボソ... more »I went to Candy in February 2018. There is a temple which celebrates buddha's teeth in the ancient capital, and there is Candy Lake in the center. In the morning, the policeman was feeding the fish of the lake and bread, but it was curry bread in india, and curry is devoted. The lake in the evening was beautiful. Candy was also a big city, so there were many attractions. Personally, i went to school in the morning and the way was good. There is also a shop where you serve alcohol! The hotel was good at The Old Empire Hotel , about 1200 yen on the day. It is an antique style and is a feeling to settle down stylishly near the lake. One café, tare (curry) is pretty good. Wifi you can get access key in the café, but i can't use it too weak. The only bad thing is that the next door is Buddha Temple, and it jumps up in pooja in the morning! Pretty noisy! Other than that it's pretty good, but it's just fatal. I think that i want to do candy at least two nights or more.
It is located in the middle of the Kandy city and very beautiful and eye catching. It has a better surrounding to make a walk around the lake. Temple of the tooth relic is located near the lake in a one side of lake.
Beautiful lake right at the center of Kandy city. It is an artificial lake with walking space. Eye catching sceneric mountain behind the lake. The Sacred Tooth Temple is adjacent to the lake. The nearby road is busy with people and road traffic. Many cine shooting and new wed couple with cultural costume take photo
