Volume 1 deals with the History and Architecture of the Temples which housed the Sacred Tooth Relic in various parts of the Island, beginning with Anuradhapura where it was initially housed after Princess Hemamala and Prince Danta brought it from the Kalinga country in India in the 4th century AD during the reign of Kirti Sri Meghavanna. Since then the Sacred Tooth Relic was moved to several places, depending on the security situation in times of war, till the Sacred Tooth Relic was brought finally to Senkadagalapura (now Kandy) in the 16th century during the reign of Vimaladharmasuriya I and housed in the Śrī Daḷadā Māligāva in Kandy. All these places where the Sacred Tooth Relic was housed, have been described in detail with photographs and illustrations to complement the text.
