No better place to overlook the whole of Kandy lake and take in the look and feel of the city including the Temple of the Tooth.

Kandy is beautiful town located between hills.. from this point you can have bird's eye view of the town and it is amazing, specially in late evening and night.

It was good. The view is breathtaking and you can see the entire city along with the lake from this view point. It is very close to the market and you can cover the entire market on foot from here.

Beautiful spot to see the entire city in a blink of an eye. You can walk up to view pint enjoying the walk. It's not very uphill. There are some boutiques where you can buy souveniers to take home.
