Kandy's main attraction is the Dalada Maligawa, the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic of Buddha, the founder of Buddhism. Brought to Sri Lanka in the 4th c A.D., the sacred relic has ever since been the symbol of sovereignty for its rulers and always enshrined in great splendour. Kandy's Dalada Maligawa is a magnificent shrine, with decorative walls, moat, turrets, golden roof and fine wood-work and its 16th -19th century ambience vividly alive. Three religious services (Pooja) with traditional music, held daily at dawn, mid-day and in the evening, can be viewed by visitors.
