The Pinnacle of Sinhalese Buddhism


This film depicts much of the traditions which take place daily at the temple based on the rich drumming and musical traditions of the hill country Sinhalese. A major focus of this documentary is on the Kandy Esala Perahera that takes place each year on the Esala full moon day in August. This festival with a history of over 300 years, is considered one of the most colourful religious pageants in the world.
