Kandy Lake

Kandy Lake is an artificial lake which was built by the last king of Sri Lanka and of Kandy, Wilkarama Rajasinhe. It was originally built to the beautify the Temple of the Tooth and serves as a remnant of last Sri lankan Kingdome. This lake is also called “Kiri Muhuda” which means Milky Ocean. This lake has an unfinished wall called the Valakulu Bamma, meaning cloud walls. When the lake was built, a dam was built across the lake which was later destroyed from both the ends leaving and island shaped structure in the middle. This structure remains today and serves as an island in the middle of the lake which adds beauty to it. This lake is basically built on paddy fields and thus requires extra protection.
