On our third day, we visited Kandy, which is a major city in Sri Lanka, located in the Central Province, Sri Lanka. It is the second largest city in the country after Colombo. It was the last capital of the ancient kings’ era of Sri Lanka. The city lies in the midst of hills in the Kandy plateau, which crosses an area of tropical plantations, mainly tea. Kandy is both an administrative and religious city and is also the capital of the Central Province. Beautiful scenarios and magnificent landscapes. We also attended the cultural show featuring traditional Sri Lankan Dancing and fire show.













I would like to thank Mr. Rizmi, who was our guided tour person for six days, who also became a very good friend and brother. Without him most of the photos you see here wouldnt be possible. He is a great example of honesty, friendship and kindness. If you decide to go to Sri Lanka, I strongly suggest to call him, he will arrange you the tour in accordance to your need, in a very competitive price and as well take you to unique places to experience the beauty of Sri Lanka to its fullest. He will be the best companion in your trip in all aspects, and you will come back with amazing photos guaranteed. Call him at +94 729938855 (please tell him that I recommended)”

  1. As usual great photographs Salim. Sri lanka is one of the best countries to visit. Quite close too. Lots of good opportunity to shoot scenic shots. People are, as you wrote honest and friendly. I like the cultural show pictures – mine did not come out well. Looking through your pics, I felt I was there seeing the fast paced actions of the artistes…

    • Thank you ITTI. Being inside, a camera and lens with low light capabiltiies was a must. Luckily I was prepared. :).

      First of all, you need a zoom lens, atleast 200mm and above. Secondly, your lens should have atleast 2.8 and below, so that you can absorb enough light.

  2. Mashaallah very beautiful photos.

  3. Salim what is your settings for the fire show? I really like it and I would like to try that in coming muscat festival

    • Thanks Asma. Depends on the festival, if you are indoor, than you need a low aperture lens, 2.8 and below. Otherwise any lens would do, as long you make sure you have a shutter speed of 1/200 and above to freeze the fast paste movement

  4. I am now touring Sri Lanka and also find the people wonderfully friendly and kind. We shall be spending 2weeks with our children in Galle.
