Kandy is located about an hour away from Santani and was Sri Lanka’s last kingdom and cultural capital. A major site for Buddhist pilgrims, white-clad Sri Lankans gather with frangipani and lotus blossoms to offer at the Temple of the Tooth inside the Royal Palace complex.

Explore the temple and Kandy market, or wander through Peradeniya Botanical Gardens. If needed, you may also request for a guide at the Temple of the Tooth to get a better understanding of the history and background of this sacred place. We recommend visiting the temple and gardens on separate days.

30km to Kandy from Santani Resort. The duration will vary based on the number of places you choose to visit.

If visiting the temple please wear long bottoms, a top with sleeves, and ideally white or light-coloured clothes.
