The Temple of the Tooth shelters a very holy relic for the Buddhists (a molar of the Buddha). Each year since 1774, in August or July, they celebrate here the great festival of the Perahera, during which a procession from 60 to 100 elephants magnificently decorated, preceded by troops of dancers and masked musicians, parade the night through the streets of the city in the light of the torches.
