As I went to return to our driver's car, he said, "No, come with me".
He instructed Maureen and I that we would need to see the palace and he was right, we should take a peek!
What a beautiful site to see!
Our walk towards the palace provided a sense of respect, prayer, and peace.
Thankfully we had planned to try and sneak in a temple visit today and dressed accordingly- knees and shoulders were covered.
Walking around- what used to be home to the Prince of Kandy and is now a place of worship - in your bare feet truly provided a grounding and blessed experience.
I do recommend a visit, just keep in mind, for the locals, entry is free but for tourists, the cost is just over $10 USD
