A Wesak zone has been declared in the Jaffna City. This is the first time that such a Zone has been set up in the town.
The Wesak zone includes the area surrounding the Jaffna Fort, the Doraiappa Stadium and the Library premises. The Security Forces Headquarters in Jaffna has launched several programmes.
The programme will get underway on Thursday and continue until the 30th. Arrangements are in place to illuminate the area with Wesak Pandols and Lanterns. There will also be Bhakthi Gee recitals and dansalas.
