Did you ever see elephants wearing beautiful cloth, gold, silver, and brightly colored jewels? In Sri Lanka, hundreds of elephants parade for 10 nights during peraheras!
In Sri Lanka, several peraheras or Buddhist processions are held each year. Visitors from around the world take part in the festivities. The most important perahera is held in the city of Kandy to honor a sacred tooth relic of Buddha. Dozens of elephants are colorfully decorated to walk in the processions.
Students find out more about this interesting Sri Lankan holiday, and about the country itself. Where is it located? What role do elephants play in the culture? What are other Sri Lankan traditions? Look for pictures of the ornately decorated elephants.
