Independence Day

Celebrating Independence from Great Britain in 1948, falls on February 4. Parades, dances, processions and national games are organized all over the island, but the main event is held in Colombo, attended by many politicians.

Gangaramaya Navam Perahera

Started in 1979, the Gangaramaya Navam Peraherahas since developed into one of the Sri Lanka’s finest. Held at night on Navam Poya at the Gangaramaya Vihara in the heart of Colombo, it’s a popular tourist attraction that can be viewed from stands located along the roadside of the procession’s route. The fascinating preparations, particularly the arrival of over 100 tame elephants at Viharamahadevi Park during the daytime, can also be observed.
