Kandy Perahera

The Kandy Esala Perahera , one of Sri Lanka’s most famous religious festivals, takes place every year in the hill capital Kandy. It is a very grand affair with elegant costumes and is celebrated either in July or August depending on the Full Moon Poya Day. You will witness more than fifty elephants and tuskers, hundreds of drummers, dancers, singers and cultural dances. This is truly a very spectacular event.
