In the evening we finally arrived at the bungalow near to Kandy that we would be staying at. The main road was closed for resurfacing so we had a nail-biting drive up the security back road which was almost too narrow for the Jeep and had sheer drops at one side. However the journey was worth it as we came to our next abode: colonial building which was being renovated so that half of it could not be used, but this became irrelevant when we took in the view the next morning. In the early hours when the sun was still coming up I went out onto the roof to take in the view before going out into the gardens.

The main attraction in Kandy is the Temple of The Sacred Tooth which is believed to hold one of the Buddha's teeth.
