Street walk Colombo; Vesak 2009

Offices and homes, join in the celebration, decorating with special Vesak Lanterns

For the first time i noticed majestic city closed....
its hard to capture the ambience that the paper lanterns create...

Buddhist flags and vesak lanterns for sale!

Dull Streets light up with the deco...

Vesak is the equivalent of Christmas for Buddhist, when the Birth, Enlightenment and attainment of Nivarna of the Lord Buddha is celebrated.
