Festivals
Owing to the variety of religions faiths, Sri Lanka has frequent colourful and elaborate festivals. A highlight among these is the Kandy Esala Perahara, Which is held in the full-moon month of Esala (July/August). This 10-day event builds up to a crescendo of dancing, drumming and parades of richly caparisoned elephants. At about the same time of year another elaborate festival is held at Kataragama in the south, where days of frenetic activity culminate in devotees walking across beds of glowing cinders.
