It is said that the Sacred tooth have been snatched from the flames of the Buddhas funeral pyre in 483 BC, the tooth was secretly smuggled into Sri Lanka during the 4th century AD, hidden in the hair of a princess.

Over the years the tooth has increasingly grown in status as a symbol of sovereignty, and natives believed that whoever had custody of the tooth, had the right to rule the island.

Today, the temple turns as a pilgrimage site for Sri Lankan Buddhists who will visit at least ones to the temple throughout their lifetime.

Monks still conduct worship within the inner chamber of the temple, performing arts rituals three times daily. On Wednesdays, a symbolic bathing of the Sacred Relic occur with a flavored herbal preparation made up of scented water and fragrant flowers.
