"PERAHERA, POYA, DAY PARADE!!!" Kandy by ViajesdelMundo

Kandy Travel Guide: 324 reviews and 783 photos

DAY PARADE

I will post a few photos of the DAY PARADE, as I have an album on my front page with photos of the PERAHERA at night.

Even with security risks, the Perahera went off smoothly and everyone does a MOST remarkable job!!

PERADENIYA GARDENS

Always a delight, if time permits, to spend a couple hours or more walking through the gardens and enjoying the monkeys as well as the flowers.

See the Travelogue below for lots of photos of monkeys with their newborns!

Pros and Cons

    I do not know how the elephants tolerate those costumes, but they do look elegant. I enjoyed your adventure!

    Thanks for stopping by my page. No Sri Lanka for me any time soon. I do have a 2 week trip all set for Philippines and Borneo in January 2009. Asia is still very safe relatively speaking. I love this elephant parade photo!
