Inside the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic

After spending the morning at Pinnewala, we headed further up country to Kandy.  

The family had a cozy lunch at Amaya Hills - where I noticed that we were the only family and all, as in ALL the other diners in the restaurant were couples.  Date Lunch Friday???  What's up!  Well Kandy is honeymoon capital of Sri Lanka and Amaya Hills overlooks a beautiful vista and well it's pretty special.

After that we headed to the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic.  Remember during our first visit to Kandy, we just went around the compound because it was Auvurudu (Sinhala New Year) and there were just too many people.  Now it was just a regular day and it was such a good time to go in.

Here is how it looked like...

Walking towards the Temple, my hubby and my daddy. SWEET!

The Temple from the outside...
I love temple art!
Mah boyz and Luna Babi!

Buddha's tooth relic is inside but unfortunately we couldn't take pictures of the shrine.  

Just to be in the same place as Buddha's tooth is is pretty awesome even for a non-Buddist!

A must-see if you are in Kandy!
