The Sacred Tooth Relic Temple or DaladaMaligawa is a monumental architectural heritage site well knownnot just in the Kandy region but all over Sri Lanka. This edifice was constructed to house the tooth of the Lord Buddha, which was brought in to the country hidden in a princess’shair. It is considered to be one of the holiest place for many Buddhists not just in Sri Lanka but by believers across the globe.
Every year in August, this festival celebrates the Relic Tooth of the Lord Buddha, which is carried out in a procession for the people to worship it and rejoice in its holy vibe. The festival is widely known for the grand show, beautiful costumes, well-choreographed dances, and decorated elephants. Considered a symbol of Sri Lanka, the Kandy Festival is said to be a culmination to rituals dating back centuries. For instance, one of the rituals was the EsalaPerahera, performed as a prayer to Gods for rain.
One of the most mind-blowing features of the Kandy cultural landscape lies in the city’s traditional Kandyan dance, which has been revived after facing an extinction following the decline in popularity during the British rule. Now extremely popular across the country, the traditional dance is said to have originated from an exorcist ritual required to cure the King Vijaya.
