A large number of Buddhist devotees flocked to the Kelaniya Raja Maha Viharaya on  Unduwap  Poya day which fell yesterday.

Religious observances were carried out amidst COVID-19 restrictions.

It was the  last Full Moon Poya day of the year and commemorates the arrival of Sangamitta Theri to  Sri Lanka caring with her a sapling from the sacred Jaya Sri Maha Bodhi in Buddha Gaya in India.
