Kandy - Sri Lanka - Worshipping the tooth relic
Kandy is very popular due to the annual Buddhist pageant known as the Esala Perahera, in which one of the inner caskets used for covering the tooth relic of Buddha is taken in a grand procession through the streets of the city. Here, buddhist devotees worship the tooth at a service in Kandy.
