Without Borders 2021 - The Temple of the Tooth, Sri Lanka
I am modeling an ancient Buddhist temple in Sri Lanka namely The Temple of the Tooth (Dalada Maligawa in Sinhalese). This is the palace where the left Canine tooth of Gautama Buddha is enshrined. Initial constructions were started in early 17th century, but have been destroyed from time to time by invaders. Present day constructions were initiated in early 18th century. The temple which is venerated by thousands of local & foreign devotees and tourists daily was named as a world heritage by UNESCO in 1988.
