What to Expect
You will be starting your half-day tour from the entrance of the Temple of the Tooth Relic at 8:30 am. This UNESCO World Heritage Site was built in the 17thcentury and is now based in the old Royal Palace Complex of Kandy. However the Sacred Tooth Relic it houses has a history of many millennia. You will be visiting the temple before starting your tour proper. Some of the sights that will be quite eye catching are the golden Buddha figurines, the beautiful murals in the passageways and the regal architecture.
You will then go on a walk through the streets surrounding the Temple of the Tooth and will be viewing important monuments such as the National museum, the Kandy Lake and many others. You will also visit a Hindu Temple.
Some of the other interesting things that you will get to see and do is watch a garland maker create flower garlands from scratch; go on a short three wheeler ride around the city; walk through the market of Kandy looking at the stalls filled with fresh fruit, produce and other merchandise; and eat street food such as the ever-famous Sri Lankan 'Koththu'. The charges for your three wheeler ride which gives you a 360 degree view of the city, and that for your street food experience which allows you to taste interesting Sri Lankan flavors that you have never tried before; is included in your tour package already. So you don't need to pay anything extra either.
Your tour will conclude at 12:30 pm at the entrance of the Temple of the Tooth where you started
