Kandy Esala Perahera
The glittering Esala Perahera, held in Kandy, is one of the grandest events in Sri Lanka. Many locals and foreigners look forward to witness this wonderful festival every year. This is held during the Esala month, in August, honouring the sacred tooth relic of Buddha. It is very grand, with elegant costumes and richly decorated elephants, fire dancers, whip-dancers, famous Kandyan dancers and various other cultural dances. This year, Perahera can be witnessed during the nights from 11th – 20th August 2013. If you plan your travel to Sri Lanka during this period, it would be a much more memorable experience.
