See our newest photos from Kandy Perahera 2019. They are taken at the Sri Dalada Veediya, which is the road leading from the town centre to the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic. To be more precisely: What you see is the street's segment near Kandy Lake in the background and the famous colonial-style Queens Hotel. The photos are taken from the side of the said hotel.
Sri Lanka's most illustrous pageant is not only celebrating Kandy's Sacred Tooth Relic, which is the national palladium of Sri Lankan Buddhism, but also including the island's four major Hindu deities protecting it and their entourage. Each god is represented by a specific colour of the decoration atop the tusker.
