The spirit of the Rosyth Estate
Kandy is the second largest city in Sri Lanka and is known as the Capital of the Hill Country. An important and established Buddhist site, Kandy was formerly known as the city of Senkadagalapura. It served as the last capital of the Sinhalese kingdom before falling to the British in 1815. A highlight on any Sri Lankan tour, Kandy offers the iconic attraction of the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic as well as the Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage and the Peradeniya Botanical Gardens.
