Esala Perahera

The Esala Perahera went past the Temple of the Tooth in the ancient hill capital of Kandy, some 116 km from Colombo on 25 August. The festival features a night procession of Kandyan dancers, fire twirlers, traditional musicians, acrobatic fire performers and elephants, gathering thousands of tourists and spectators from around the island.
