This is a part of the Sri Dalada Maligawa or the temple of the tooth. The museum is located on the upper two floors of Alut Maligwa, just behind the main tooth shrine of Sri Dalada Maligawa.
The museum displays a stunning array of gilded gifts to the temple. Letters and diary entries from the British time reveal the colonizers’ surprisingly respectful attitude to the tooth relic. More recent photographs reveal the damage caused by the truck bomb in 1998.
