#вызовпринят 2010год 
Сейчас вспоминаю мою поездку на Шри-Ланку и понимаю,  что все было ради этого - нарядиться в сари😄.
Когда меня закрутили в несколько метров красивейшей ткани и нарисовали бинди это был полный восторг и какое-то невероятное ощущение детского счастья.😊
Потом жалела, что не привезла его домой, вот так случилось плохое настроение...замоталась... и опять мир прекрасен 😁
И смотрите какие все наши девочки красотки никаких проблем с фигурами - идеальная одежда для женщин, жаль не для нашего климата😋

Hanguranketa ancient palace.
The current Hanguranketha Pothgul Maliga Rajamaha Viharaya was built by a buddhist priest called Poholiyadde Thero in 1830 when the casket of his offering which he carried was firmly bound to this ground when he rested it on this land. According to legend, the priest was on a pilgrimage and he spent on night on this ground. Next day when he was preparing to leave, the casket carrying his offering could not be moved from the place he left it the previous day. The priest considering this an omen, wowed to build a temple on this ground which was called Sangaruwanketha ( now Hanguranketha). It is also believed that this temple is built on the ruins of Devram Vehera which was in existing during Polonnaruwa Kingdom (1070 – 1236). It is recorded that that the kings Sri Weera Parakrama Narendrasinghe (1707 – 1739) and Sri Vijaya Rajasinghe (1739 -1747) used Hanguranketha as the second capital to Kandy and had palace built in this town.
But in 1808 this palace which was then used by Sri Wickrama Rajasinhe (1798 – 1815), the last king of Sri Lanka was burned to the ground by the British forces under a major Johnson. This palace would have been grandeur based on the writings of Robert Knox who was a free roaming  prisoner of  King Rajasinhe.

Today we can see the massive granite entrance, door frames,  dragon carvings, moonstones, finely decorated pillars, steps and many other granite artifacts which has been used to build the Pothgul Viharaya which became the Pothgul Maliga Rajamaha Viharaya since the temple was built with the material from the ‘Hanguranketha Maligawa’ (Hanguranketha palace) . It is also said that special copper tiles were imported from Spain to tile the roof. .

Carrying the main relict - Tooth of Buddha, and it is always by one and only elephant, who is coming from far by his feets during several days to reach this place and carry all 10 days this relict. This is the most important part of Perahera, because since ancient times people started to make this festival to  ask for rain in a drain season. That’s why whenever monks take out Tooth from the temple it starts raining, especially when the Elephant with this Relic is passing. And to my big surprise it was really raining, though all these days was nice sunny weather .

Queens hotel is one of the eldest hotels in Sri Lanka. The Hotel was originally constructed as a residence, the 'Dullawe Walauwa', designed by Devendra Mulachariya on instructions from King Sri Vickrama Rajasinha, in 1841. It was then adapted as a mansion for the Governor of Ceylon, with adjoining buildings constructed to house troops. The building was subsequently converted into the barracks for the Ceylon Rifle Regiment. Due to its location on Malabar Street (now known as D S Senanayake Veediya) the building in the 1840s became known as Malabar House.It was initially operated as a boarding house

Elephants on Esala Perahera festival 18.08.2018 (3rd day). It  is one of the oldest and grandest of all Buddhist festivals in Sri Lanka, featuring dancers, jugglers, musicians, fire-breathers, and lavishly decorated elephants. This is held in Esala (July or August) which is the month that is believed to commemorate the first teaching given by the Buddha after he attained enlightenment. The Kandy Esala Perahera lasts for ten days while various festivities can be witnessed right throughout.  The Sinhalese term ‘Perahera’ means a parade of musicians, dancers, singers, acrobats and various other performers accompanied by a large number of caparisoned Tuskers and Elephants parading On the streets in celebration of a religious event.

Royal swimming pools (for him 🤴and for her👸)
One of the best specimen of bathing tanks or pools in ancient Sri Lanka is the pair of pools known as Kuttam Pokuna (Twin Ponds/Pools). The said pair of pools were built by the Sinhalese in the ancient kingdom of Anuradhapura. These are considered one of the significant achievements in the field of hydrological engineering and outstanding architectural and artistic creations of the ancient Sinhalese.
A garden was landscaped which separates the two ponds which long is 18½ ft. The larger pool of the two is 132 ft by 51 ft, while the smaller pool is 91 ft by 51 ft. The depths of the two pools is 14 ft and 18 ft for the smaller pool and the larger pool respectively.
The faces of the pools were cut granite slabs which includes the bottom and the sides of the pool. A wall was also built around the pool which encloses the compound. Flights of steps are seen on both ends of the pool decorated with punkalas, or pots of abundance and scroll design. Embankments were constructed to enable monks to bathe using pots or other utensils. Water to the pools were transferred through underground ducts and filtered before flowing to the pool and in a similar fashion the water was emptied.
