The public are paying their homage to the Sacred Relic of the Lord Buddha brought to Sri Lanka from Gandhara in Pakistan. The Sacred Relics are being placed at the Vidyodaya Maha Pirivena.

 

It was possible to bring the Sacred Relics to Sri Lanka from Pakistan following a request made by President Rajapaksa from his Pakistani counterpart Asif Ali Zardari. It was Minister Dinesh Gunawardena who unveiled the Casket containing the relics for exposition today. A large gathering including school children arrived at the Vidyodaya Maha Pirivena Vihare in Maligakanda to pay obeisance to the Sacred Relics.
