BakmahaPerahara“Cultural and Religious Pageant”- NuwaraEliya

The Wadduwa Rajamaha Perahara, held annually in July, displays the rich religious and cultural tradition of Sri Lanka. Hundreds of monks clad in colourful robes solemnly walking in the procession are a unique sight. Youth clad in white carrying Buddhist flags march in front. Sacred relics housed in a casket are carried by a majestic elephant on its back. Dancers display the different types of dances prevalent in different parts of the country. So do the drummers who exhibit their skill in handling numerous forms of drums. Many elephants also participate.
