“If you see one cultural show it may as well be this one.”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

Good dancers, and good performance but watch out for the heat. It gets very hot.

The performers are very professional and the acrobatic performances are awesome! A really nice evening,

“The splendor of the Kingdom of Kandy”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

The Kingdom of Kandy was the last one among Sri Lankan Kingdoms to lose its independence to foreigner rulers. In 1818 it was absorbed by the British Empire as a protectorate. The Royal Palace was the residence to the last King, Sri Vikrama Rajasinha, overthrown in 1815 by the Bristish forces.The Palace, adjoining the awesome Sacred Temple of the Tooth Relic, is a jewel in the Kandy historical buildings complex and a visit is a must. Enjoy!

“Nice and peaceful..”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

A must see in Kandy and this is the kingdom of the last king of Sri Lanka Sri Wickrama Rajasinghe. Situated in the same location as the Temple of Tooth and a visit is very much worthwhile.

“Essence from the Kandyan Heritage”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Kandy was the great city in the Sri Lankan history, From temple of tooth to many famous Buddhist temples. Kany has played a great role in the History of Sri Lanka. You may find many things related to the erawhen you visit hte royal palace.
From technicalities of the architecture to simple containers... The customs and costumes of the Sri Lankan royal family.
If you require more about the hestorical artifacts or information, you can also visit the meuseum in-side the temple ot tooth~
