Try to visit this place at night time you will get excellent views of kandy!
The drive uphill is slightly unnerving so if your scared of heights be careful. You will have to pay to enter - be careful the guy who will look after your shoes will also want a tip don’t be confused by him as the young monk who needs to be paid after!
You can walk up to around the statues mid range if you can stomach the small metal stairs but I think it’s worth it!

Went to worship the place. For buddhists this is a sacred place and non buddhists it's a breath taking place. Located at the top of the mountain near to the Kandy city. A huge Buddha statue has been built here and people can climb up behind the statue. Has a really good view of the Kandy town. Since this is a Buddhist temple , recommend to wear decent cloths which cover your body. Stay away from bright colours and expect a good behaviour.

Such an imposing sight, and so inspiring to see, this huge white statue of the Buddha is a must see for any traveller of any religion. The devotion of the Sri Lankans to the Buddha makes a trip to their country almost a pilgrimage and the constant Buddha statues involve the traveller in much deep thought about existence. The beauty of this statue makes it hard to leave and we sat there for some time just gazing at it in wonder. Beauty is a rare thing and there is so much beauty in Sri Lanka.
