Kandy View Point


The perfect spot to witness Kandy in all its glory.

You want to breathe in Kandy in all it's glory. 

You want to witness the gorgeous vista.

The lush greenery lining the sparkling water of the iconic Kandy Lake, the Temple of the Tooth Relic overlooking the city, the iconic buildings and the blue sky dotted with a tinge of white, that add to the mosaic that is Kandy. 

Situated at 1790 feet above sea level is the Arthur's Seat, or the Kandy View Point, from which you have an amazing panoramic view of the city of Kandy. 

Here you'll find a platform that is built to facilitate your viewing of the city below. 

How To Get There

It's right above the town, at Rajapihilla Mawatha, you can take the road leading up from near the Bogambara Prison.

What To Expect

Apart from the breathtaking view, you can find a few vendors selling little souvenirs and also a plethora of beautiful paintings embodying symbols of Sri Lanka. 

As the night approaches, and as the numbers who visit the view point dwindle, it's a pretty cool (literally) place to maybe have a quick snack at and just hang, breathing it all in. 


Despite whatever the time may be, the view point will always succeed in taking your breath away. If you're in Kandy for a holiday, or just exploring the city, it's a must-go.
