Situated next to the sacred Temple of Tooth, the Kandy Lake is a sight to behold. With the lush greenery of the surrounding hills forming a perfect backdrop, the lake embraces you with its serenity and resplendent beauty. The lake was built in 1807 by King Sri Vikrama Rajasinh. The most alluring is the island situated in the middle of the lake. Now plush with palm trees and bamboo thickets, the island in the beginning was the bathing place of the queens and the ladies of the court. A walk around the shores of the lake is a must for anyone visiting the lake.
