The Swadeshi Industrial Works PLC sponsored the “Aloka Poojawa” of the historic Keragala Raja Maha Viharaya for Nawam full moon poya day. The illumination is done under the theme; “Swadeshi Khomba Aloka Puja Sathkaraya”.
Situated in the Gampaha district, the Keragala Raja Maha Viharaya was built in the 13th century in the reign of King Vijayabahu during Dambadeniya Kingdom. The “Padmawathi Piriwena” was established in the Keragala Raja Maha Viharaya in the reign of King Parakramabahu VI in the 15th century. 
Swadeshi Chairperson/Managing Director Amari Wijewardene said Swadeshi being a Sri Lankan-owned company, considers safeguarding the culture and traditional heritage of Sri Lanka by supporting such activities as this annual Aloka Pooja, a duty and also a debt the company owe towards mother Lanka.
She further observed, Swadeshi illuminates places of worship in the country for the benefit and ease of all worshippers and also with the intention of educating younger generation on the importance of safeguarding the country’s culture and heritage.
In 2013, the ‘Sri Dalada Maligawa’ of historic Dambadeni Raja Maha Viharaya and the ancient murals were renovated by Swadeshi Chairperson/Managing Director Amari Wijewardene to bring back its past glory.
Swadeshi also supports the Aloka Poojas of Kataragama Kiri Wehera, Ruhunu Kataragama Maha Devalaya, Sabaragamu Maha Saman Devalaya, Devundara Sri Vishnu Devalaya, Redigama Ridi Viharaya and Dambadeniya Raja Maha Viharaya.
