Kandy Lake - Review
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, Kandy Reviews
Kandy lake brings grace and beauty to the Kandy city. Located in the centre of the town. The sacred Temple of the Tooth Relic situated very close to the lake. A jogging track has been built around the lake. So an ideal place for joggers. Recommend to visit this place early morning.
I think most coolest place in the earth. Located near to most venerable place in the world Temple of Tooth. Amazing late night experience around the lake. Seating facility available around lake. You can feed the fish in the lake. You have to spend few hours around lake.
One of the best places in Kandy to have a relax or to refresh your mind with a cool breeze. Located near the Temple Of the tooth. You can see plenty of aquatic animals like goose and water monitor. At the sunset, one can feel a beautiful view. Seating places are available around the lake. Even you can feed the fishes in the lake.
This lake improve beauty of Kandy city. This is located middle of the city near to Temple of Sacred Tooth Relic.
It shall be more clean and they should do some to make it more clean.
