It is also worth noting that the religious nation of Sri Lanka offers visitors a glimpse of colourful celebrations at various times of the year, bringing together heritage and fun to the community. In either July or August of each year, “Kandy Esala Perahera”, or the Festival of the Tooth, is celebrated with music, parades, elegant costumes and decorated elephants. Another religious celebration is “Vesak”, a Buddhist festival famously held at Gangaramaya Temple in Colombo for a week or so. The streets and buildings are lined up with decorations and lights, making the city shine brightly at night. Both celebrations are dependent on the Full Moon Poya Days, so keep that in mind before booking your next holiday.
