The Temple of the Tooth Relic has its own web site, www.sridaladamaligawa.lk. It has a photograph of the same temple entrance on the page about the temple history.

“Kandy, in the Eastern world, derives its greatest renown from being the home of Buddha’s tooth, and the temple of the Tooth attracts great crowds of pilgrims of the Buddhist faith from many lands. It [the tooth] is said to have been brought here in the sixteenth century, and the small temple in which it was placed has been enlarged and made a shrine where costly gifts are laid by devotees from China, Japan, the Malay Peninsula, Siam, and other remote points. Buddhism claims the larger portion of Ceylon’s [Sri Lanka’s] subject’s, having in comparison with Hinduism a small following in India, where it originated.
