This is one of the holiest temples in Buddhism. It is said to contain the remains of one of Buddha's teeth. You can visit the temple during the day or night. At night, they have a few drummers that play in the entry way of the temple. To get in, you must go through a security check. In the early 1990's, the tamil tigers set off a bomb near the temple.
