Temple Of Sacred Tooth Relic Or Sri Dalada Maligawa, Kandy Reviews
A must visit of a lifetime when you are in Sri Lanka. The sacred temple of tooth. The temple is built is ancient Buddhist architecture and is a testimony to preserving the sacred tooth relic so religiously precious to the local to the people of Sri Lanka. We were lucky to visit the temple during the auspicious Pooja ceremony, which is a sight to behold. The music and austerities are magical. One of the most sacred and beautiful Buddhist temple in Sri Lanka.
Entrance fee is around 3000 per person. With that you can visit the tooth relict and some exhibitions. If you are in Kandy you should check it out but I would not go on purpose to kandy to visit it as a tourist. In order to enter you need long pants for men as well and you should take off your shoes. The exhibition are nice but not great. One that I really enjoyed showed the story of the tooth in 20 paintings with a short explanation. This was very educational. The tooth relic you can not see only the shrine around it. After the visit of the building you can hang out in a pavilion like building with a very relaxed atmosphere.
This is the temple tooth relic of lord Buddha. One of the world heritage places you must visit in my country. Highly sacred place worshipped amongst Buddhist all around the world. Dress appropriately. Otherwise security will give you some cloths to cover up
The temple of the tooth is really impressive and attracts lots of pilgrims and tourists. I was touched by the crowd dressed in white holding flowers and other offerings. Unfortunately there is really a crowd and a big queue to get close to the chamber where the sacred relic is. From time to time it is closed. We had to wait for some time when it closed just as we were almost there. Then we were rushed and could only glance through a little window. Only locals with special permission are allowed inside the chamber
A very temple with Buddha Tooth Relic. Great experience. The Temple is very old and sacred. You will have an amazing experience. Offer the white flowers you get outside the temple. The entry is fee for local . Indians need to pay rs. 1000 and others rs.1500 local money.
