The Temple of the Tooth, also known as Sri Dalada Maligawa, is a beautiful golden-roofed Buddhist Temple in the heart of Kandy. Ever since 4th century A.D, when the Buddha’s Tooth was brought to Sri Lanka, hidden from sacrilegious hands, the Relic has grown in repute and holiness within Sri Lanka and through the Buddhist world. It is considered Sri Lanka’s most prized possession. The best is to plan an early-morning visit to skip the crowds and see the legendary tooth relic of Buddha. No expense is spared to protect the tooth, which is enclosed inside several golden boxes, covered in jewels. The temple is a must-see in Kandy, not just for its religious fame as one of Buddhism’s most important shrines, but also for its beautiful interior. Photography credits: Yasith Weerasundara
