Raja, the great tusker, which carried the Sacred Relic Casket for more than half a century, is honoured by the Dalada Maligawa by preserving the dead animal’s skin and tusks prepared to look like the tusker when alive. The museum which is located in a small building adjacent to the Royal Palace is visited by tourists and pilgrims who throng themselves to the Sri Dalada Maligawa.
