A.D., the sacred relic has ever since been the symbol of sovereignty for its rulers, it has been enshrined in great splendour from time immemorial. Kandy’s Dalada Maligawa is a magnificent shrine, with decorative walls, moat, turrets,a golden roof and fine wood-work and its 16th – 19th century ambience remains vivid.

This mountain is also known as Samantakuta, Sumanakuta, Samanalakanda, Samanhela, Samangira, Medumhelaya etc. The Christians call the mountain Adam's Peak, derived from the Portuguese Pico de Adam (Peak of Adam).
