Temple of the Tooth Sacred Relic Srilanka

Sri Dalada Maligawa or the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic is a Buddhist temple in the city of Kandy, Sri Lanka.  It is located in the royal palace complex which houses the relic of the tooth of Buddha.

Rituals are performed three times daily, starting from early morning, at noon and in the evenings. On Wednesdays there is a symbolic bathing of the Sacred Relic with an herbal preparation made from scented water and fragrant flowers, called Nanumura Mangallaya. This holy water is believed to contain healing powers and is distributed among those present.
