I visited the Sri Dalada Maligawa - Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic - it was a spiritual experience, not to be forgotten. If you are visiting Kandy, never miss this place and its historical heritage.

The Dalada Maligawa, commonly known as the Temple of the Tooth, is a sacred Buddhist temple in Kandy that is a popular tourist destination. Kandy's central business area and the lake surround this hotel, which is situated in the centre of the city.

It was originally the royal palace, where the monarch and his consorts resided, but following the fall of the Kandyan Kingdom, the palace was converted into a Buddhist temple, which now houses Buddha's tooth in its crypt. It is a destination that should not be missed by any visitors.

At the temple, visitors may see Buddhist ceremonies, tour the museum that has many old relics, and pay their respects to the tooth relic during one of the Buddhist ceremonies that are performed on-site. There is little doubt that you will be impressed by the architectural beauty and historical significance of the Dalada Maligawa.

The Aluth Maligawa, the Audience Hall, and the World Buddhism Museum are all noteworthy stops on the itinerary. Be aware that the Maligawa is a Buddhist shrine, and you will be required to dress appropriately, with clothing that covers your shoulders and legs, before planning your visit.
