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.

Kandy Lake Reviews & Ratings
Serene lake, in the heart of Kandy Town . If you could remove the traffic, or go back 100years it would be perfect place to enjoy an early morning walk, or evening stroll.
Very good place to take some rest. Cool wind, mild hot. Lovable place in the busy city.
Quite and calm lake. In the evening time you can take nice photographs with the sunsets.woow
Went on a boat ride here. The lake is a place of tranquil with bird sighting. The circular road around is full of traffic but the lake seems unaffected!
Quite and calm lake. In the evening time you can take nice photographs with the sunsets.
