General opinion:  Kandy is the capital of the administrative district of Kandy in Sri Lanka and also the capital of the Central Province, which comprises of the districts of Nuwara Eliya, Matale and Kandy. Kandy is located in the center of the country amongst the hills of the Kandy Valley.

The population of the city in 2001 was 0.109 million. The city of Kandy is cooler when compared to the island.

The monsoon season extends from May to July and December to January and during these months the climate is rough and unstable. The best time to visit this city ... More is from March to midst of May.

The culture of Kandy dates back to about three hundred years and has been affected by the colonization of the region by the British, Portuguese and the Dutch. There is considerable social diversity as one can find people using buffaloes in a paddy field while others busy in software engineering.
