En route you will visit the Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage to see elephants bathing in the river at Pinnawela and then visit a tea factory at Giragama.
Upon reaching Kandy, we will visit the Dalada Maligawa, The Temple of the Tooth Relic. This famous temple houses the tooth relic of the Lord Buddha, rescued from the cremation flames in 543 BC and brought to Sri Lanka in the 4th Century. The relic cannot be seen as it is encased within seven jeweled gold caskets, each worth a king's ransom.
We will continue our visit with the Kandyan Arts and Crafts Center, to find craftsmen fashioning brass, silver and lacquer work.
The next stop is at the Royal Botanical Gardens. We will visit its magnificent Orchid House and the grove of splendid trees, all planted by eminent world figures. At the end of the day, we will return to Colombo.
