The Tooth Relic temple founded by King Nissankamalla 12 A.D.
This is the temple of the Tooth build by King Nissankamalla (1187-1196 A.D.). It is said that it is called Hatadage because it was built sixty hours. It has been a two storied building and the upper floor may have contained the Tooth Relic. Among the stone slabs on the walls are three inscriptions of King Nissankamalla of which one has the words ?Nissanka Hatadage?. The other inscriptions contain the king?s altruistic activities and advice given to the community of Buddhist monks. The roof may have had wooden beams and covered with clay.
