The Temple of the Tooth Relic, locally known as Sri Dalada Maligawa is believed to be the sacred home of Lord Buddha’s tooth relic. Declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, religious devotees and travellers from around the globe make their way through the misty mountains of Kandy to visit this temple. Every year, the sacred tooth relic is paraded through the streets of the city in a colourful, elaborate holy procession, complete with elephants, fire dancers and traditional performers.
