Temple of the Tooth

Sri Dalada Maligawa or the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic is a Buddhist temple in the city of Kandy, Sri Lanka.

An ancient fortress and capital built in the year 1301. Yapahuwa is a rock rising to a height of 90 meters. Many traces of ancient battle defenses can still be seen, while an ornamental stairway remains its biggest showpiece. Yapahuwa the 13th century capital in Sri Lanka was made by King Buvanekabahu1. Here the chief object is the rock, which rises about 300 ft above the surrounding land.  The land at the base to the south is fortified with two moats and ramparts. In this enclosure there are the remains of a number of buildings.

 

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.
