The Last Kingdom of Sri Lanka

Wedding Hotels in Kandy Sri Lanka

Kandy is a UNESCO World Heritage city and hosts the Temple of the Tooth Relic which is an important icon in Buddhism and the crowning jewel of the Kandy Esala Perahera festival which is held annually around August or September.

Thanks to the cool mountain temperatures, walks through the town are pleasant. Kandy is a great city for slow travel. No one is ever in a hurry and the whole atmosphere is relaxed and laidback.

The Kandyan people maintain long-enduring traditions, especially weddings that are observed and carried out today with Kandy wedding hotels that cater to traditional Kandyan weddings. The ceremony has its own costumes mirroring the dressing style of the Kandyan kings and queens with Kandyan styles sarees, Sinhalese turbans, traditional jewellery and Malabar trousers.
