Kandy is also known for the festival called “the Esala Perahera” or just “the Festival of the Tooth”.
It takes place annually in June or August.
It’s basically a large, colorful procession with the tooth of Buddha.
I’ve seen it and felt a bit sorry to all elephants…
Kandy is one of the biggest cities in sri Lanka.
It has many diverse tourist attractions, but the most famous is the Temple of the Tooth.
The Temple of the Tooth has a tooth relic of the Buddha and it’s a must-see place in Sri Lanka.
