Measures are being taken to restart manufacturing special bricks for the Stupas under the Abayagiriya project of the Central Cultural Fund.
The bricks are being produced at the kiln at Galkadawala in Anuradhapura according to the standards maintained during the era of the Sinhalese Kings.
These bricks are being used for the renovation work of the Abayagiri and Jetawana Stupas. The conservation work on the Abayagiri Seya will be completed within the next two years on the instructions of President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
Accordingly, the production work at the Galkadawala kiln which is operated on private contract basis will be expedited.
