Kandy Lake, Kandy: 8 reviews and 20 photos

by freya_heaven

The Lake in the centre of Kandy is beautiful, It is a lovely sights to see & very unusual for such a large open area in the centre of a big town.

It was built in 1807 by Sri Wickrama Rajasinha, who was the last ruler of the Kindom of Kandy. Feelings about the lake have not always been positive by the locals, apparently people who objected when the lake was being built were put on stakes & drowned in the lake!..........Nice!

The Island in the centre was built & used as a harem buy Sri Wickrama Rajasinha, It is possible to have boat trips on the lake.
