Sri Lanka – Buddha’s Tooth

Tim and I spent our honeymoon in Sri Lanka and Maldives. Our tour guide Zudhi, the friendliest and sweetest person we’ve met planned to take us to attend Esala Peraher in Kandy. It is a massive parade which lasts 10 days. Tim and I were fortunate to attend the first day, where the parade lasts for 3 hours. Oh you think that’s long? Hell No! Zudhi told us that on the 5th day, the parade lasts for 5 hours.

The main event of the parade was to wait patiently for Buddha’s tooth which is kept in a golden box. It is a very important event in Kandy and all around Sri Lanka but we were lucky to attend the biggest one and which happens to be in Kandy. I have to admit, I didn’t have the patience. We watched the parade for an hour and decided to leave.
