    The final scene in the video, the delusion at is best. The no need to chant. It is not what is said in the Buddhist philosophy. Just get to work and built it again.

    Is nothing sacred anymore in Sri Lanka? Why do people in our land have no pride for our heritage?

    Looks like a hill overgrown with weeds. Organized religions tend to get fussy over the smallest things.
