SIGIRIYA AND KANDY

The remains of Sigiriya constructed by King Kasapa I (477-495 AD) whom the Mahavansa introduces as a patricide lie five miles off Inamaluwa on the Dambulla-Habarana Road. On the west of the rock are ponds, the remains of summer palaces and other structures, and the first part of the ancient road, which led to the summit Ramparts. In the past the entire western face of the rock had been covered with plaster and painted upon, but only those paintings in two sheltered pockets now survive. The last lap of the ancient path to the summit had been through the mouth of a lion, but at present only parts of the lion’s legs and some of the lime stone steps from inside the lion’s mouth survives.
This temple houses the sacred Tooth Relic of Lord Buddha and is one of the Holiest Buddhist places of worship in the world. The history of the Sacred Tooth Relic in Sri Lanka begins in the fourth century A.D. According to traditional history it was during the reign of Kirti Sri Meghavanna. The Sacred Tooth Relic of the Buddha was brought to Sri Lanka from Kalinga in India (301-328 AD). A Temple for the Sacred Tooth Relic in Kandy was first built by King Vimaladharmasuriya I, when he ascended the throne of the Kandyan Kingdom in 1592 AD
