We arrived mid day on a religious holiday which was silly, however it was our only chance given our schedule. We took our shoes off (charges a fee for safekeeping - westerners only, everyone else left there's by the entrance) and where offered a tour by soooo many guides it was frustrating and very 'in your face'. Basically it was so busy we went with the flow and were basically pushed through the temple having little say in what we wanted to spend time looking at. Im still not sure at this point in time where the actual tooth was situated. People were pushing me in the back trying to offer flowers and it was a very un-Buddhist experience. Since ancient times, the relic has played an important role in local politics because it is believed that whoever holds the relic holds the governance of the country....I wish we had gone in the evening...we would have had a far better appreciation of the temple and a far more zen experience. The wonderful glimpses of rituals being performed was humbling. Well worth a visit but choose your timings.
