Temple of the Tooth Reviews
キャンディ湖近く、古都キャンディのスリランカ仏教信仰の中心をなす寺。仏陀の歯が安置されています。寺の周りでお供えの花がたくさん売られていたので買って入りました。入口で靴を脱ぎ、靴置き場に預けます。受け取るときに25ルピーほどお金を払いました。１日に３回、プージャという礼拝があり、その時には仏歯が納められている部屋の扉が開かれます。ちょうどプージャ前に入ったので、供物をささげる儀式や祈りを捧げる人達... more »Near Lake Kandy, this temple forms the center of the Sri Lankan Buddhist faith in the ancient city of Kandy. Buddha's teeth are enshrined. There were a lot of flowers sold around the temple, so I bought them. Take off your shoes at the entrance and leave them in the shoe storage area. I paid about 25 rupees when I received it. Three times a day, there is a worship service called Pooja, which opens the door of the room where the French teeth are stored. I had just entered the front of Puja, and i was filled with people offering offerings and offering prayers.
A place you won't want to missed since it's the UNESCO site as well as the biggest and most popular buddhist temple in Sri Lanka. Ceremony held in August if you want to see the tooth parade, more »
in this is the one that is very unique and beautiful in every way. We are here talking about the Temple of Tooth Relic. This temple is very popular and most of the tourists coming to Sri Lanka come here definitely because of its uniqueness. Like many other popular places of Sri Lanka, this too comes in the world heritage sites and is marked so by UNESCO. The temple is spiritual and historical both. So, people come here are interested in both subjects. It is said that the tooth relic that the temple has is of Buddha. Also, there is this saying that one who will hold that tooth relic will be the governor of the kingdom. This temple is located in the city of Kandy.
It took over 3 hours by train from Colombo to get to Kandy to visit this place but it is well worth the journey. It is a truly wonderful experience. With hindsight I wish we had hired a guide as I'm sure we didn't fully understand everything. It was very busy with tourists, lots of children on school trips, families and other interesting people visiting this holy place. If you get the chance to visit you will not be disappointed by everything you see.
