Wondering what is going on around the world in August?

BuddhaWondering what is going on around the world in August? The Esala Perahara is one of the oldest and most extraordinary festivals in the world. The festival takes place in Sri Lanka in July/August in the city of Kandy. It lasts for 10 days and is considered to be one of the most colorful and spiritual occasions in Asia. Elegant costumes, jewel-encrusted elephants and cultural dances mark the occasion.

The festival dates back to the ancient city of Anuradhapura, where the sacred relic of the tooth of Buddha was taken through the city in a procession. The custom continues today, with the relic still carried at the head of a huge procession which winds its way round the city by night. This ceremony has now become a major tourist attraction throughout Asia.
