Watch the Culture Show in Kandy
A trip to watch the famous Culture Show, a spectacle of traditional Sri Lankan dance, music and performance, is a must when visiting Kandy.
The captivating one hour performance immerses the audience in local tradition and culture. The evening show includes drummers, traditional performers and fire and demon dancers!
We include a trip to the Culture Show when we visit Kandy during our Sri Lankan tours.
What else is there to do around Kandy?
Some of Sri Lanka’s most popular sites are located in and around the city of Kandy.
The city is home to the Temple of the Tooth, the stunning temple which houses the revered tooth relic of Buddha. We explore the beautifully adorned temple complex, which is nestled on the edge of Lake Kandy, during our trip to Kandy.
The 147 acres of Kandy’s Royal Botanic Gardens are also waiting to be explored when visiting the city. The highlight for many is the gigantic Javan fig tree which is over a century old. The roots of the tree expand out to cover an area of two thousand square meters! The gardens are world famous and have been visited by Marshal Tito, Yuri Gugarin and Queen Elizabeth II.
