Also known as the cultural centre of Sri Lanka, the historic town of Kandy was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the 1980s in recognition of the Buddhist Temple of the Tooth relic, which is located here. The climate here is slightly cooler than in other parts of the country, which is great for exploring its compact historic centre, visiting one of its many markets or taking a stroll around the Kiri Muhuda Lake.
