'Holy Place'

The Holy Temple of the Tooth (Sri Dalada Maligawa), Kandy is the most sacred shrine of Buddhism. It is regarded in the same way as the Basilica of Saint Peter at the Vatican is to the Roman Catholic Church. The temple of the Tooth is the prime monument, the supreme edifice not only of the Sinhalese Buddhist populace of Sri Lanka but also of the Buddhists all over the world. It is inside this stunning temple that the sacred tooth relic of Buddha (Danta Dhatu) is housed.
