Photographer's Note

The Temple of the Tooth is probably Sri Lanka's most important temple. It is said to house a tooth from Buddha that was rescued his funeral pyre. The tooth is contained in a heavily guarded casket so it is not possible to see the tooth itself.

Security is tight at the temple following a bomb blast here in 1998.

This picture is taken from a boat on Kandy Lake. An artificial island is to the left.
