Vesak: Around Kandy Lake and Sri Dalada Maligawa

Last year I wrote quite an extensive post on "Reflections on Vesak in Colombo" so I feel like I don't need to rehash that blog post. If you haven't read it before and you're interested, then please feel free to read the post.

In the weeks leading up to Vesak, I've spent more time in and around Kandy. The Kandy Lake and Sri Dalada Maligawa provide a real focal point and, for me, there is a real sense of good vibrations. Rather than write a whole spiel, I'd like to share a samll number of photos in the lead up to Vesak.

This photo of Sri Dalada Maligawa was taken at around 5.35am this morning from across the Kandy Lake...

And, these two were taken as preparations were underway within Sri Dalada Maligawa...

Have a safe and generous time over Vesak!
