Hanging around Kandy

Posted by on February 12, 2011

Kandy city is itself of note mainly for the Temple of the Buddha’s Tooth.  Though nice and pretty interesting to a non-Buddhist in a “huh, that’s cool” sort of way, the temple itself is hardly enough to keep one around Kandy for the 5 days I spent there.

Heavy rain accounted for most of my first two days, and Kandy’s location in the middle of a lot of cool villages and attractions accounted for the rest.  If I make it back to Sri Lanka, Kandy would be the perfect city to base out of with a map and a motorbike as a plan.
