This beautiful water reservoir is the heart of the Kandy city and the scenic ecosystem around it enhances its presence. Initially believed to serve as a personal Harem for the king Sri Wickrama Rajasinha, the lake has many folktales around it. The lake is said to be connected to the royal by a secret tunnel.

The fortress-style parapet around the perimeter of the lake was a British addition and it is a pleasant spot to just breathe and observe the peaceful beauty of the hill station.
