About Royal Palace of Kandy

The reminiscence of the last Kandyan King Wickrama Rajasinhe, the Royal Palace of Kandy is a reminder of the royal past dating as far back as the 14th century. It lies close of the valleys of Kandy. This palace is an architectural brilliance and has witnessed many sacred beliefs.
What we see today is only the remains of the original palace of the Kandy King which consists of the Royal Court and Temple of the Tooth.The original was destroyed several times and subsequently rebuilt by successive kings. The main entrance of the original palace still remains which is located to the left side of the Temple of the Tooth Relic. The building also houses the Museum of the Department of Archaeology.

On one side of the palace is the Victorian building which was built by the Britishers during the sub-continent rule. This building is the remnant of the British influence on the Sri Lankan legal system. The Kandy High Court was housed there for several years before being shifted to Ampara in Eastern Sri Lanka. The Royal Court is an architectural brilliance. It was at this place that the Chieftains of Kandy signed the convention to end the Kandyan kingdom.

This place deserves a visit for all of its royal remnants and history attached to it!
