Buddha’s Tooth Relic

The central altar in the Reliquary Hall enshrines a gilded copper pagoda containing a relic of Buddha's tooth. When Buddha was cremated, his entire body turned into fine relics, except for some teeth that remained intact. These are the Buddha's tooth relics, highly revered as the source of the words and teachings of Buddha. The benefits of these relics include national peace, public well-being, agricultural abundance, and longevity.
