Kande Viharaya Trip

Posted on by Jaya

At the end of July, we organised a three-day trip for 53 children who attend Sunday school classes at the temple.

They wanted to see the upcountry, but they are not used to the weather, which is colder than Tissa.

They all came with jumpers and hats, which was funny as the tourists were all wearing T-shirts and shorts.

We visited many temples including the Temple of the Sacred Tooth in Kandy, which has the most important relic in Sri Lanka.

The tooth was taken from Lord Buddha’s funeral pyre and came to Sri Lanka in the hair of a princess in the fourth century AD.

After seeing the temples and Botanical Gardens in Kandy we went to Nuwara Eliya and to see some waterfalls.
