    The final Randoli Perahera of Sri Lanka's premier Buddhist procession, the historic Esala Perahera in the hill capital of Kandy will parade the streets tonight (10).

     

    The Esala festival will be concluded with the traditional water cutting rituals in the Mahaweli River at the Gatambay Thotupola on Monday (11) morning.


    The historic Esala Festival, a tradition being carried from the eras of Kings, attracts thousands of devotees, pilgrims and foreign visitors to the hill capital of Kandy and it is a major tourist attraction.
