The Navam Perahera is the biggest procession of its kind in Colombo. These are some photos taken by Nazly Ahmed, who you should follow on Twitter (@nazly).
Elephants are a vital part of the perahera tradition, but they don't seem to enjoy it that much. We hope this is a tradition that will get phased out over time.

We hope you had a peaceful Poya and a Happy Independence Day. Thanks again to Nazly for the photos.
