Sripada pilgrimage season ends

May 29, 2010 4:08:10 AM - itnnews.lk

The Sri-pada pilgrimage season has come to an end after bringing the idol of god Saman to the Galpottawala Rajamaha Vihare in Pelmadulla.

The Sripada pilgrimage season commenced on Unduwap Full Moon Poya Day. It drew to an end last afternoon with the dawn of the Weasak Full Moon Poya Day. Religious observances were held at the Maluwa and alms offered to the Maha Sangha. The idol of the god and the Casket were brought to the Buddhist Centre at Nallathanniya last afternoon. These were thereafter brought to the Galpottawala Rajamaha Vihare at Pelmadulla.
