The Temple of the Tooth

Today we visited the Temple of the Sacred Tooth, a Buddhist temple right in the middle of Kandy, in the Royal Palace grounds. It is located here due to the importance of the relic of the tooth of Buddha, which is encased in seven golden caskets engraved with precious gems.

The architecture of the temples and the designs inside were so beautiful and intricate, with lots of bright colours and flowers. We had a tour guide taking us through the different rooms of the temple and explaining the history behind the temple. A very interesting day out!
