This is a submission to this week's theme "Patterns and Repetitions". If you have not submit an entry yet, please do so by following instructions in the above link. 

All of the photos were taken on my trip to Sri Lanka. This is a buddhist country and patterns and repetitions seems to be a common theme in buddhist art.

I should really make a separate post for the event below. I captured this while attending the yearly night parade in Colombo's main temple. Parades are organized yearly as a way to bless people in the surrounding area. They also feature local and Buddhist cultural dances and music. This photo is from a group of dancers representing the city of Kandy.

Below photos are from the same temple in Colombo, Sri Lanka. If you ever visit the capital city of Sri Lanka, this is a must go place. It offers lot of peace and quiet in the busy city
