Temples of the Gods in Kandy

Recommended
At different periods from the 14-18C, the Sinhalese monarchs built a sanctuary, to the north of the Temple of the Holy Tooth Relic, devoted to each of the four major gods that keep watch over the sacred city of Kandy. Those dedicated to Vishnu and Natha are the most remarkable and very popular with pilgrims, although the busiest sanctuary is that devoted to Pattini, Hindu goddess of fertility. The last is more secluded (towards Kataragama Devale).
