TEMPLE OF THE TOOTH RELIC - KANDY - SRI LANKA

Sri Dalada Maligawa (the Temple of the Tooth Relic) is one of the most sacred Buddhist temples in Sri Lanka. This is situated at the Kandy Royal Palace compound. Temple of the Tooth Relic houses the sacred tooth relic of Lord Buddha, which houses the only surviving relic of Buddha, and one of the holiest places for Buddhists around the world. The sacred tooth relic was brought to Sri Lanka in the Anuradhapura Era during the reign of Sri Megavanna (301-328 CE). Thereafter the custodianship of the sacred tooth relic was considered as the right for rule for reigning monarchs of Sri Lanka. Temple of tooth is played an important role in the local politics since ancient times; it’s believed that whoever holds the Temple of tooth relic holds the governance of the country, which caused the ancient kings to protect the Temple of tooth with great effort. Kandy was the capital of the Sinhalese kings. Finally, the Tooth Relic was brought to its present shrine at last Kingdom of Sri Lanka – Kandy, by King Vimaladharmasuriya I (1590 - 1604). Annual Kandy Esala Perahera or the world-renowned ‘Kandy Perahera’ a grand pageant, is held to pay homage to the sacred Tooth Relic of Lord Buddha. Kandy was the capital of the Sinhalese kings from 1592 to 1815, fortified by the terrain of the mountains and the difficult approach. The city is a world heritage site declared by UNESCO in part due to the temple.
