Things to do in Colombo in July

In July, tourists usually travel to Kandy, which is about a two-hour drive from Colombo, to attend the Kandy Esala festival. The festival, which is often called the most extravagant pageant in Asia, is held towards the end of July and the beginning of August and lasts for ten days. 

The festival is filled with thousands of dancers, actors and acrobats. The number of performances increases daily as they head towards the final day of the festival. 

It is important to note that most of the locals do not like the festival being referred to as a tourist attraction. Instead, they feel that it is a religious event where they give thanks and ask to be blessed with rain to improve their harvest. 

It is also important to note that the festival is also to celebrate one of Sri Lanka's most priceless treasures, the tooth of the Buddha. The tooth is encased in golden casket and is carried by the largest elephant.
