An inter-faith celebration is being held at Awataha Marae where a collection of rare Buddhist relics will be on display.

The Auckland Relic Tour offers an opportunity for North Shore residents to view the 29 pearl-like crystal relics which are sacred to Buddhists around the world.

Tour operations manager and co-ordinator Kala Dostal says the relics were found in the ashes of cremated Buddhist masters over the centuries.
