Pinnawala Elephant orphanage & Kandy

The hill capital of Sri Lanka founded in the 14th Century AD, and the last kingdom of Sri Lankan kings before it fell to the British in 1815. The Temple of the Tooth Relic which houses the sacred Tooth Relic of "Lord Buddha" is the most significant building in the city and is a place of veneration for the Buddhists world over. Kandy is the most visited and photographed city. The journey to Kandy presents the traveller with a cross section of what Sri Lanka has to offer in landscape and scenery. The rice fields and pretty villages depict facets of Sri Lanka. Besides the temple of the tooth relic is the audience hall, which is a fine example of the architecture of the Kandyan era.

Kandy Perahera - The period July-August is the Esala Perahera (Perahera means Procession) season in Sri Lanka. The Sinhalese term 'perahera' means a train of musicians, dancers, acrobats and other performers usually accompanied by a number of elephants parading the streets in celebration of a religious event. (This is a "must see" event.)

Peradeniya Royal Botanical garden - No visit to Kandy is complete without seeing the Royal Botanical Gardens. The garden consists of nearly 150 acres dedicated to the flora of Sri Lanka. There are over 110 endemic plants. A striking feature is the avenue of royal palms begun in 1905.


Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage - A home to orphaned Elephants. This elephant Orphanage is setup especially for Abandoned or injured baby elephants. They are reared here and are trained to become working animals. Feeding and bathing in the river provide the best opportunities to see the animals at close-up.
