Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic
Kandy, Sri Lanka
Visit the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic. Ever since 4th Century A.D, when the Buddha’s Tooth was brought to Sri Lanka hidden from sacrilegious hands in an Orissan princess’ hair, the Relic has grown in repute and holiness in Sri Lanka and throughout the Buddhist world. It is considered Sri Lanka’s most prized possession.
Please note: it is recommended that you wear light colored clothing (preferably white, but not required) covering your knees and shoulders during your visit to the temple. Cameras are permitted at no extra cost, but a video camera permit is required.
