Explore the Temple of Sacred Tooth Relic of Kandy

Not only is Sri Lanka a nation that’s blessed with unparalleled natural beauty, but it’s also one of the most culturally rich areas in all of South Asia – owing primarily to a rich and storied history. While there are numerous culturally significant locations dotted all over the island, few are as important or as intertwined with Sri Lankan heritage as the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic in Kandy. Built in the late 16th century by one of the last Kandyan Kings of the island, this temple – as its name suggests – houses a sacred tooth relic of the Buddha! The temple can be easily reached from most prominent hotels in Kandy, such as the Cinnamon Citadel Kandy, and is undoubtedly worth a visit if you’re in the area.
