In the early hours of a warm morning, 2 local women wait on the steps outside the Buddhist Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic. Like hundreds of others, they are here to pray and view the relic of the tooth of Buddha which is housed in the temple. The temple is located in the royal palace complex of the former Kingdom of Kandy, Sri Lanka.
