the temple of tooth paintings

The door frame and dragon arch above it are similar to those at the entrance to the tunnel only brightly painted. Four huge elephant tusks are sometimes kept on the porch. Now the pilgrim should turn left and walk around the shrine. Twenty six pillars with wooden capitals supporting triple corbels, all painted with lions, birds, fantastic beasts and flowers support the lower roof around the shrine.At the far end of the shrine is the entrance to a museum housing Buddha images and other gifts offered to the Temple over the years, none of them particularly interesting.

Upstairs is the Sri Dalda Museum housing an excellent collection of documents, photos, and documents relating to the history of the tooth.Retrace your steps down to the shrine again, finish walking around it, returned to the Drumming Hall, turn left and climb the stairs that lead to the upper entrance to the shrine.
