The tooth relic too was brought from Dambadeniya kept in a special building for the purpose. Yapahuwa is situated in North West of Kurunegala. Kurunegala is a treasure house of archaeology, having been the seat of four medieval kingdoms of Sri Lanka between the mid 12th and 14th century. Sri Lankan kings built remarkable citadels at Panduwasnuwara, Dambadeniya, Yapahuwa and Kurunegala.
Impressive remains of these citadels-fortresses, palaces, Buddhist temples, shrines, monasteries and hermitages, walls and moats as well as monuments of much earlier (even pre-Christian) and later European colonial periods, providing existing sightseeing to visitors. The North Western province has a number of medieval temples and edifices raised on pillars or small boulders. All of them contain classical masterpieces of Sinhala art & craft, wall paintings, wood work, sculpture and images of the Buddha.
