Really enjoyed walking around the lake in the late afternoon sun, it was nice to get away from temples for a while and join the joggers and families enjoying the evening.

We decided to walk round the lake as it looked small enough, it took us 45mins at a slow pace. I thought it would be a nice walk but the traffic noise and fumes makes you realise why most people don't walk along the lake! I think the best part was meeting the locals and talking to them. They were curious and often asked "Hello, you from?" which mean "Where are you from?". We saw a pelican on a tree but it looked so battered, I felt sorry for it. I was surprised that there were quite some species of birds living around the lake.

Kandy lake is a good place to chill and get away from the traffic, pretty in the morning and evening with great light of the lake.

Nothing special at all. Its a small lake, where is located next to the temple of the tooth. It's good for sit and rest a bit, and enjoy the view. I wouldn't give an average bu neither a very good rating, its good, that's just it.
You can go shopping around there, you'll find some restaurants. Very quiet, and relaxing place.

Loved passing wedding couples getting their photos taken on a auspicious day. Lovely walk all round the lake.
