  Temple of the Tooth, Kandy
by freya_heaven

On Buddhas funeral pyre, his tooth was taken & smuggled in to Sri Lanka in the hair of a princess. Now it rests in the Temple of the Tooth in Kandy, which attracts many pilgrims & tourists.You do not actually see the tooth is is in a room and then apparently in Gold casket after Gold casket.......

The whole temple area is lovely & there is much more to see than just the tooth (or not), including a traditional English church!
