Vesak

Starting on 2010-05-27/28 Vesak is the main event in the Buddhists Calendar. The day celebrates Buddhas birth, enlightenment and death. Buddhists swarm the temples, clad in white to offer flowers to Buddha. Beautiful pandals and lanterns which are traditionally made of bamboo, are set up in many places in the country. A visit on Vesak night around the country or cities will be a rewarding experience. (http:///www.srilanka.travel)
