Tears of Buddha in a templ

In Muthiyagana temple, you can find a big white stupa, which is the focal point of prayer in the temple. Muthiyagana is one of the 16 major temples of the island, and a place of pilgrimage for Buddhists from Sri Lanka. They say that inside the stupa there are Buddha's tears. During Buddha's 3rd trip to Sri Lanka, Indika gave this to one of his disciples, 3 of his tears, which became pearls. Indika placed them inside a stupa, and people have come to visit from all over. There is so much fervor in this temple, especially if you visit in the morning.
