Temple of the Tooth
Kandy’s most dominant landmark is the Dalada Maligawa, the 16th–19th century moated and golden–roofed temple of the sacred tooth relic of the Buddha. It is one of Sri Lanka’s most sacred and venerated Buddhist shrines.
The Dalada Maligawa draws multitudes of pilgrims daily, who come to worship and participate in traditional rituals which are held three times a day. The atmosphere of lively religious activities as part of a busy daily life alone is well worth seeing.
Dalada Maligawa was part of the palace complex and the king lived nearby. On the other side of the temple the old but artificial lake contributes to the special charm of this place.
