The manmade lake built in 1807 is the main body of water in the city of Kandy (which is located in central Sri Lanka).

The Lake has a depth of almost 60 feet, also with a perimeter of almost 2 miles. A wall that runs more than 2000 feet alongside the banks of the Kandy Lake known as the Walakulu Wall is a site that you cannot miss.
