    The Annual Duruthu Perehera of the Kelaniya Raja Maha Vihara will be held on January 2 and 3.

    The Perahera will commence at 8.00 pm with the handing over of the relic casket to Chief Basnayake Nilame, Dhammika Attygalle by the Chief Incumbent of the Vihara, Ven Professor Kollupitiya Mahinda Sangharakkita Nayake Thera.


    The historical pageant had its revival in the year 1927 due largely to the efforts of that great Philanthropist Don. Walter Wijewardene, son of Helana Wijewardene Lamathani. This religious cultural pageant has evolved over the years to become the country’s most elaborate and grandest low country pageant.
