about temple of the tooth (sri dalada maligawa)

Temple of the Tooth, also known as Sri Dalada Maligawa, is one of the most prominent attractions of the region. The complex of the temple is huge and ideal for meditation. It is situated at an altitude of approximately 5,350 feet above sea level. The temple offers a sensational view of the Udawatta forest behind it. Walking towards the entrance you will notice the huge statue of Wariyapola Sumangala with his right first raised and right leg forward. This is the first statue of a monk that is in an aggressive pose.

The stories that follow the history of Buddha's tooth is as amazing as the temple itself. They say that the tooth was snatched from the funeral pyre of Buddha and smuggled in to Sri Lanka back in 4 CE Rolling in time both the temple and the tooth, that has been preserved inside the temple, have sustained damages and survived forceful ownership. Also, some believe that the tooth that has been kept in the temple is a replica and the original one is kept in secret and safe custody.
