Temple of the Tooth

The temple of the tooth is a vast temple with many surrounding buildings and areas. The temple is home to the sacred tooth relic.  According to legend the tooth relic is the ashes of one of the teeth of Buddha. The relic is closely guarded and can only be viewed by the public at certain times. The temple itself is a very religious building and it is a place for worshippers to come and leave their offerings to Buddha.
