Devotees climbing the Mihintale rock

Poson Poya:

Celebrating a momentous event


As the arrow went in search of its unseen quarry at lightning speed in the stillness of the jungles around a massive rock, the ruling monarch of an island in the Indian Ocean barely heard someone calling his name. No one dared to call his name - they called him Your Majesty, prostrating themselves before him. But not this time.

 

Mahaweli Maha Seya:

A serene tribute to Kotmale


The ceremonial opening of the Kotmale Mahaweli Maha Seya (Pagoda) will take place tomorrow (June 20) at 2 p.m. in the presence of President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe. The Stupa then becomes the second largest stupa in Sri Lanka, after the Ruwanweliseya in Anuradhapura. It will also be one of the greatest architectural achievements of Sri Lankan engineers of the 21st century.
