Kandy Perahera is a unique fusion of two processions – The Esala and Dalada. Originally, the Esala Perahera was a ritual performed to ask the gods for rain. The highlight is the spectacular sight of over a hundred elephants, decorated in lavish costumes of colourful silk and fairy lights that transform the streets into a glittering marvel. The Dalada Perahera, meanwhile is to honour one of the world’s few sacred Buddhist relics, in this case, one of the Lord Buddha’s teeth. It is housed at Sri Dalada Maligawa (‘Temple of the Tooth’) and is the country’s most prized possession. Elephants play a very important part in the pageant. Richly decorated, it is hard to pick the most beautiful. They stride amongst the musicians, fire jugglers and torch bearers carrying gold and jewels. It is the largest elephant, easily spotted with long white tusks (it is always a tusker), who is given the honour of carrying casket containing the Tooth Relic across the city. You will also see many amazing dances and performances, one of the most exciting is the Gini Sissila—The fire dance originated in southern Sri Lanka and symbolizes the power of faith over devils while eating fire.
