The Temple of the Tooth. The ordinary day turned extraordinary when we entered the palace that houses the Buddha’s tooth. No matter your religion or walk of life one comes from, it is impossible to deny that there are some places that have the power to take your breath away, and in this temple you could feel it. This experience is humbling, yet it makes you feel as if you had more power than ever before. The palace, for about four hours, became my classroom. It was the best learning experience I have had so far. I learned about the power that lies behind the statues that they would bow down to.
After the temple, the orientation had the group going to a carving factory. We decided to go on a better adventure. “The Big White Buddha” we didn’t know the name of it, so that's what we called it. This is a statue standing 88 feet tall, visible from outside of Kandy.
