Day 5 – Habarana – Kandy

The Buddhist mural paintings (covering an area of 2,100 sq. meters) are of particular importance as are the 157 statues including a 47-foot long statue of the recumbent Buddha.

Afterwards leave for Matale and visit a Spice Garden. The plants nicely arranged with the coconut husks pile up in rows indeed fascinated to see. Here you will be able to indulge your senses and dabble in the homeopathy remedies of the East!

Then we leave for Kandy (Approx. drive time – 2 Hours & 30 minutes), the bustling hill country capital is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is famous for the pink painted Temple and the Kandy Lake built in 1807 that is an attractive centerpiece to the town. Check in to the hotel.

In the evening, visit the sacred Temple of the Tooth Relic. It is the prime monument, the supreme edifice not only of the Sinhalese Buddhist populace of Sri Lanka but also of the Buddhists all over the world. It is within this magnificent temple that the sacred Tooth relic of Buddha (Danta Dhatu), the palladium of the Sinhalese nation & Buddhist faith is enshrined. Thereafter enjoy the Kandyan Cultural show at the Kandyan Arts & Cultural Centre. The show features the graceful and rhythmic dancers and drummers culminating in an impressive fire walking display.
