APTOPIX Sri Lanka Buddhism
In this Monday, Aug. 19, 2013 photo, Sri Lankan traditional dancers perform with fire rings during an annual Buddhist procession in Kandy, Sri Lanka. Hundreds of thousands of Buddhists throng the hill-capital every year to venerate Buddha's tooth relic which is taken on a parade on decorated elephants with traditional dancers and drummers performing. The event is considered as Sri Lanka's most prominent religious and cultural ceremony that dates back centuries. (AP Photo/Eranga Jayawardena)
