Sri Dalada Maligawa (Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic)
Sri Dalada Veediya, Kandy 20000, Sri Lanka
The Buddha's Tooth in Kandy, Sri LankaWe hired a guide to take us around the Temple of the Tooth, among the most revered of temples for Buddhists as it houses one of the Buddha's own teeth. We felt mildly out of place among the worshippers, but we were there to learn and were welcomed. We learned much about Sri Lankan history and Buddhist philosophy in only 1 1/2 hours, and left with a better understanding of this place and its people.
