The Sri Dalada Maligawa is one of the most important Buddhist sites in Sri Lanka. Situated in the royal palace complex in Sri Lanka’s second city, Kandy, the temple holds the ‘Sacred Tooth Relic” – the tooth of Buddha. The relic has played an important part in Sri Lanka’s history for thousands of years, and the Temple of The Tooth is a beautiful location for it to be housed in. Photography is off limits (not to mention distasteful) in much of the Temple, but here are some of the pictures I managed to take.
