Maligawa museum not a draw

Thousands of devotees visit the Dalada Maligawa to worship the Sacred Tooth Relic but very few of them visit the other areas of the Maligawa which are also of great interest.

The Maligawa Museum contains rare and valuable documents on the history of the Sacred Tooth Relic as well as rare photographs and documents pertaining to the British occupation of the upcountry.

Former Diyawadana Nilame Neranjan Wijeyeratne was behind the setting up of the museum which would be a storehouse of knowledge for Buddhist devotees as well as others interested in the history of the Kandyan Kingdom.For visitors to the Maligawa, a visit to the museum would be a rewarding experience.
