Kandy was the last capital of the country before British subjugation of Sri Lanka. The city has enriched Sri Lankanculture in many ways. One of the most sacred places of the Buddhists is the Dalada Maligawa, where the “Sacred Tooth Relic Temple” is located. Around it sprawls the archaeological complex of the king’s palace and the old city and many other aligned edifices. Not subject to destruction of edifices as in other capitals, Kandy remains a grandiose reflection of Sri Lankan architecture. Wooden carvings and murals embellish a number of buildings of which the Audience Hall and Dalada Maligawa are glowing examples. UNESCO declared the sacred city of Kandy as a World Heritage site in 1988.
