The Kandy Esala Perahara begins with the ‘Kappa’, which is a ritual performed by planting four Jackfruit trees in each of the four Devales, dedicated to the four guardian Gods ‘Natha’, ‘Vishnu’, ‘Katharagama’ and Goddess ‘Pattini’, customarily to shower blessings on the King and the people of Sri Lanka.
The Kumbal Perahara ~ In the next five days each Devale will organize Peraharas within their premises. But the main Perahara procession is of the Dalada Maligawa Perahara.
However, the best time to see the Kandy Esala Perahera is on the last two nights, particularly anywhere along the route gives a good view of the procession.
Escape in style and be driven by some of the best in Sri Lanka.
