Kandy Perahera Festival
Kandy Perahera Festival
Anyone who wishes to travel Sri Lanka during the month of August may hear about the ‘GRAND PAGEANT OF ASIA – KANDY ESALA PERAHERA ’
This year, the spectacular Kandy Esala Perahera is scheduled to be held from 16th August to 26th August since this Grand Pageant held for 10 days annually.
To share my unforgettable experience that I had last year, for you to get an idea “what is Kandy Esala Perahera “
Last year, I got an opportunity to see the Perahera at Queens Hotel Corridor with my colleague. It was a great opportunity since rarely local people get chances to host there due to the demand coming from the foreigners.
Not only local people but also foreigners from all over the world intend to travel Sri Lanka to see the Kandy Esala Perahera. Nowadays they are very well aware than us “this is the place” with the full excitement of Perahera experience.
However, while we were walking towards Queens Hotel, we saw some other people were arranging the chairs with white linens in few recommended streets too, hence all shops along the course are being changes into Perahera viewing galleries.
You believe or not, the people sat along the pavement since early morning!!
Some People were struggling to secure their place till Perahera starts!! Unbelievable!!!!
In some places, the pavement was three rows deep in people!!
If you are interested to be together with local people to see the Perahera on the pavement that would be an exciting experience though you face some difficulties.
Not only Kandy hotels but also other hotels in Sri Lanka are getting rush due to Kandy Esala Perahera. So if you are planning to see the Kandy Esala Perahera it is very much better if you could book your hotel well in advance & get a seat on the street.
As we felt, Queens Hotel is the prime Perahera viewing point through the rates bit expensive.
Finally, the exciting moment
Such a fabulous scenery we ever had ……….
The signal of cannon sound at auspicious starting time, make people so impatient. The sounds of whip crackers and swing flame of fire jugglers took people back to their positions and finally perahera began. The hundreds of drummers, dancers, flag bearers and the thousands of people followed them by signifying our culture, tradition, and heritage.
Have you ever seen the tuskers decorated with colorful blankets & lights????????
Among them, the Maligawa tusker was adding the more elegance to Perahera carrying the casket bearing the Sacred Tooth of Lord Buddha.
We are not able to express our own unforgettable experience in words that we had. It is something that you have to experience by your own eyes……..
