The Kandy Lake is a massive man-made lake located in the heart of Kandy. Built way back in 1807 by King Sri Wickrama Rajasinghe - the last king of the Kandyan Kingdom - the Kandy Lake spans across 2 miles in length and features an enchanting island at its centre. At present, the lake is a fantastic and popular spot around Kandy for a leisurely stroll - with several lakeside seats available as stops. The Kandy Lake also features water fountains at its centre and boat rides are an excellent way to explore the beauty of the lake. Several legends and folklore are also associated with the Kandy Lake, adding to its allure and appeal as an attraction.
