Vesak Day is the most important festivals of the Buddhists in Malaysia and fall in the month of May.

It is celebrated to commemorate the birth, enlightenment and death of Lord Buddha because according to Buddhists, all the three events took place on the same lunar date. The celebration for the Vesak day begins much before the dawn when the Buddhists gather in Buddhist temples for worship all over Malaysia. The celebration is done with prayers, chants, offerings and giving alms. The Buddhist eat a vegetarian diet prior to the festival in order to cleanse and purify themselves. Doves and tortoises are released on the Vesak Day as a symbolic gesture of releasing the soul and giving up the past sins. Free meals are also given to the needy on the vesak Day.
