Highlights of Day 1: Poya Festival

Buddhism plays an important part of the Sri Lankan culture, Poya is a monthly festival that takes place opinion the full moon day. It is declared as a public holiday when schools are closed and shops can close to allow people in the business to devote the day to religious activities. Non-religion related ntertainment activities are suspended in this day, too.

It was a coincidence that we arrive on the Poya Day where we observe some processions taking place on the street.
