After the jeweler’s shop, I walked around the Kandy city.First to the Kandy Lake.
Kandy Lake was built in 1807 by King Sri Vikrama Rajasinha next to the Temple of the Tooth. Over the years, it was reduced in size. It is a protected lake, with fishing banned.
According to the legend and folklore, the small island at its center was used by the king’s helm for bathing and was connected to the palace by secret tunnel.
