We arrived at our hotel very high up in the mountains. The views were gorgeous and again so quiet. The roads were interesting to ride on up the side of the mountain. Kandy is nice and a lot quieter than Colombo and Galle. We went to the most famous temple in the city as we thought we had to visit ...

We did a day trip from Ella to the Horton Plains national park and ...
... s main attraction, the temple of the tooth. This temple houses the tooth of the Buddha which was snatched from the flames of the Buddhas funeral pyre, and has been passed around (a lot!) before finally finding its way to Kandy. With a legend resembling that of the holy grail, there are rumours that the real tooth is hidden away somewhere, and that this temple only houses a replica. Either way, no one gets to see the tooth, only a gold ...
