Seeing a loud, vibrant and gyrating Kandyan Dance performance is an interesting experience. The one-hour long Kandyan dance performance is rather elaborate, with traditional costumes and performed to percussion only. It is a visual treat and if legends are to be believed, it originates from an exorcism ritual – an all night ceremony in the honor of God Kohomba. Many temples in Kandy even have a special columned pavilion or space designed for rehearsals and performances by resident dancers and drummers. This traditional and religious dance form is now very much aimed at entertaining the audience, comprising dance routines and costumes from across the country.
