Kandy's most dominant landmark is the Dalada Maligawa, the 16 th - 19 th century moated and golden - roofed temple of the sacred tooth relic of the Buddha. It is one of Sri Lanka's most sacred and venerated Buddhist shrines. The Dalada Maligawa draws multitudes of pilgrims daily, who come to worship and participate in traditional rituals, which are held three times a day.The atmosphere of lively religious activities as part of a busy day to day life along is worth to go and have a look what is going on in the the temple premises.
These religious edifices called the western shrines are some of the oldest buildings in the Kandyan kingdom dating from the 14 th centaury A.D. They contain painting and sculptures of great historical and artistic importance. The genius of the Kandyan master craftsmen are attested here, whereby Gadaladeniya Viharaya is built of stone, Lankathilaka Viharaya and its devale from clay bricke with a unique architectural design and Embakke Devale out of wood.
The western side has the famous "Balana" pass where all the historic Portuguese invasions of Kandy took place over and over again, where they were trapped and destroyed. This is on the Colombo - Kandy road from where you can see the unique scenery of Bible Rock (798 m). Also a little below can be seen a shape of a white Dagaba situated on top a bald round rock. It is Devanagala Viharaya and the climb to the top takes about 45 minutes. The ruins and 360 degree view are spectacular ad gives an insight to impregnability of this highland kingdom.
The conversion of Kandyan population necessitated the building of proper places of worship. Starting from the Peradeniya garden along the old road to Kandy are three churches of interest. The first one is St. John's, the second is St. Mark's. Only the parish priest at St. John's has the key to this one and he is ever ready to show it. The third one is St. Paul's church in the premises of the esplanade of the Maligawa. It contains interesting tombstones and epithets. The wind organ still works and the stained glass windows are delightful. A Sunday service can also be attended.
