Wesak Festival In Sigiriya

If you want to know more about Sri Lankan culture and want to soak in the celebratory mood, you must visit Sri Lanka in the month of May during the Wesak Festival. As Sigriya is one of the 3 cities of the Cultural Triangle, it is a great place to be during the festival. As the country of Sri Lanka is predominantly a Buddhist country, the festival of Wesak is celebrated in almost every single nook and corner of Sri Lanka. Despite their religion, every house in the country lights up during the festival. Every house displays Wesak lanterns in various shapes, sizes and colours. Huge pandals that depict the life of Buddha are lit up with strings of multicoloured bulbs. Following the Lord Buddha and his path and quality of giving, free food and drink or ‘dansal’ is offered to people on the streets. This will definitely be an exciting experience if you want to sample the culture of Sri Lanka.
