Established in 1975, Pinnawala elephant orphanage is a breeding ground for wild Asian elephants. The aim of the orphanage is to protect and care for the orphaned elephants in the jungles of the island. A natural habitat is presented to the elephants where they are taken to the river twice a day and elephants below three years are bottle fed by volunteers.
The Botanical Gardens in Kandy are renowned for their beautifulflowers and trees; orchids in particular. The name Royal comes in because they were once upon a time only open to the Kandyan royalty. With 60 hectares of land, covering 2500 square feet, this is Sri Lanka’s largest and most impressive Botanical Gardens.
Sri Dalada Maligawa, also known as the Golden Temple or the Temple of the Tooth is a venerated Buddhist worship location as it preserves the Sacred Tooth Relic of Lord Buddha. A noticeable feature of the Temple is the golden canopy that makes it easily identifiable from far away.
