Mansion Kandy's History
The Mansion was built in the 1920s by Punchi Banda Nugawela, Diyawadana Nilame, of the "Temple of The Tooth' in Kandy. He was a chieftain in Kandy who was believed to have lived a lavish lifestyle during the early 20th century. The designer of this architectural masterpiece is fully European and the architect still remains a mystery. In 1999 Mr. Rathnapala Marawanagoda, the last resident, decided to convert the villa into a hotel.
Among the top attractions in the area is the Bahiravokanda Vihara Buddha Statue, which is just under 8 kilometers away.
Temple of the sacred Tooth
