Sri Lanka Part 2 - Kandy

Kandy is the cultural heart of Sri Lanka, with large hills surrounding the beautiful lake in the centre of town. It's a former capital and features the country's most significant religious and political site, the Temple of the Tooth.

Sri Lanka is a Buddhist country and it is believed that the temple holds a relic of Buddha's tooth and that whoever holds the relic of the tooth holds the governance of the country.

We visited in the evening and it was packed with worshippers dressed in white and praying. Since it's a functioning temple it felt a little strange slinking around with my camera but it was easily the most beautiful part of the trip.
