The orphanage, which is situated in the northwestern town of Kegalle was originally founded to provide care and support for the many orphaned elephants in the jungle. Since then the orphanage has also become a breeding ground for elephants. The orphanage is thought to have the largest heard of captive elephants in the world. Most elephants found in the orphanage are healthy. However, there are a few exceptions, such as the elephant named Sama, who lost her front right leg to a land mine. Tourists visiting the orphanage will be given the wonderful opportunity to touch and take pictures with the elephants as well as to feed them milk.

Temple of the Tooth Relic:

The sacred Tooth Relic of the Buddha is the most venerated object for Buddhists around the world and its present house, the Temple of the Tooth Relic in Kandy is considered to be the foremost sacred place of worship for all Buddhists. The tooth relic has played an important role in the politics and governance of ancient Sri Lanka, as it was then believed that whoever possesses the sacred relic has the divine right to rule the country. As a result many battles were fought to earn the right to possess the sacred tooth relic. Today, the relic is placed within this temple and is enshrined in seven golden caskets, which takes the shape of a stupa and is engraved with precious gemstone.
