The Randholee theme, the uniqueness of the hotel, the interior designing, the landscaping and so much more, are her marvelous ideas which she executed to perfection.
Considered one of the most colorful religious pageants in Asia, Kandy’s ten-day Esala Perahera is one of Sri Lanka’s most spectacular festivals. The perahera (procession) is held to honor the sacred tooth enshrined in the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic. According to Buddhist history, Sri Lanka was chosen as the new home for the tooth relic of Lord Buddha because he had declared that his religion would be protected and preserved there (in Sri Lanka) for over 2,500 years.
When Buddha attained nirvana his body was cremated and his tooth was acquired from the ashes. The tooth soon became an object of veneration and a belief grew that whoever had possession of the tooth would have the power to rule that land. In the ancient times, Sri Lanka was threatened with many foreign invasions and the seat of the kingdom was moved from city to city. Upon each change of capital, a new palace was built to enshrine the relic. Finally, it was brought to Kandy where it is at present in the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic.
