Kandy Temples Trip
We'll pick you up from your hotel at 8:30 am. There, we will get into an air-conditioned vehicle and set off through the streets of Kandy to discover the importance of Sri Lanka's Buddhist religion.
Our first visit is at the Gadaladeniya Viharaya temple, built by King Bhuvanekabahu IV entirely of stone.
We then continue the tour by heading through the picturesque rice fields of the area en route to the wonderful Lankatilaka Rajamaha Viharaya temple. Once there, we will explore this ancient sacred building and learn about the customs and rituals of Buddhism.
Finally, we will go to the Embekke Devalaya temple, built by King Vikramabahu III in honor of King Mahasena. There we will tour its three main areas: the Garagha shrine, the dance hall, and the drummers' hall.
