The city and the region has been known by many different names and versions of those names. Some scholars suggest that the original name of Kandy was Katubulu Nuwara located near present Watapuluwa. However the more popular historical name is Senkadagala or Senkadagalapura, Kandy! the name this hill capital is now popularly known as holds an extensive collection of artifacts from both the Kandyan Kingdom and the times of British colonial rule. So isn't it fitting that this city patronizes the cuisine from both the local kitchens and serve other multi-cuisine preparations including European flavours, which includes British Cafe type of menus. Cafe Aroma Inn is now in operation - right in the heart of the city, in view of fulfilling more than what a demanding 'food fanatic' will ask for!
Temple of the Tooth
" There are few things not to like about the Aroma Inn. It is conveniently located close to the Temple of the Tooth, the room is as big and clean as it gets in Sri Lanka, staff was very helpful (they actually drove us all the way to Horton Plains since taxis were scarce on New Year's Day), and the value for money is excellent. If anything, noisy elevator music and staff conversations which both started early in the morning were a bit unpleasant. "

" Small room but decent. Great location, walking distance to Kandy Lake, Temple of tooth relic. The reception staff is very considerable. We arrived around 9~10am because took the earliest train from Fort Colombo after 8 hours flight. And the previous guests check out early. "
