Sri Lanka  (Asia)

Sri Lanka. July and August, each year in Kandy, the hill capital of Sri Lanka, the "Perahera" (procession) of elephants, "Mohottala" (royal advisers) and dancers takes place in the streets around the "Pattirippuwa". This is where Lord Buddha's Tooth relic is preserved. Then they inform the king and queen that they completed the annual "Perahera" successfully. This is Sri Lanka's biggest cultural pageant and dates back to the time of Sri Lanka's ancient kings. It was the inspiration for this chess set.
