History of Kandy Perahera
Assala is considered to be a combination of two independent but interconnected “paraharesas” (Processions) – Asala and Dalada. Esala Pereira, who is thought to return back to the third century BC, was ordered to ask for a divine creature for rain. Dalada Pereahera is accepted to commence when the Buddha’s sacred tooth remains were expressed in the middle of the fourth century CE by Sri Lanka from India, eight hundred years after passing the end of ruler Buddha. According to the conference, the tooth remains was taken in a procession in Sri Lanka by princess Hemamala and ruler Danta.
