“lake in the city”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

Kandy Lake is situated in the heart of Kandy City... you can walk around the lake and it will take you more than an hour but the time you spent will always be with you.... try to visit the lake early in the morning or late evening..... lot of good restaurants and hotels resides around the lake... the world famous Temple of the Tooth is also situated next to Kandy Lake.
There is one boat ride service available and it worth giving it a try

“Beautiful at sunset”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

You don't even have to try to see the lake. If you visit the temple of the tooth, you're there! Its a pretty lake that is a wonderful sight at sunset.

“Serene beauty”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

The lake is the centre piece of Kandy and adds to the beauty of this old colonial town. Take in the views of the lake from high up, they are lovely. Visit the Queen's Hotel to get an idea of the bygone years.

“A lake enclosed in a hilly area”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

Great Place. Loved the combination of the environment and the view.
Saw a lot of birds as well. There was an island like piece of land in the middle of the lake.
