Evening Procession

1 review of Evening Procession

During the days of Esala Perahera...

During the days of Esala Perahera festival, the streets of Kandy are very full. When I say full, I mean you cannot even walk on the sidewalks! Don't have a very ambitious programme for the day because with the traffic, the people and the transport delays, you will be worn out. As you can see from the photos, from noon people are sitting on the sidewalk, waiting for the procession to pass. The Perahera procession lasts 10 days. I starts at night, around 8, and ends at 1 am. Every day it becomes more important and more beautiful, but this means that these people, sitting around waiting from 11 am, will spend more than 12 hours there! The most important people, monks and politicians, have reserved seats.
