The grandnephew of S. Mahinda Thera of Tibet, Dr. T.R. Gyasto of Gangtok, visited the temple of Sri Sudharmaramaya Maha Bellana in Alubomulla on National Independence Day, to pay homage to his granduncle.

S. Mahinda Thera lived until his death at Sri Sudharmaramaya and the temple is said to hold the remains of the prelate and home to many of his belongings which are treasured in a museum.

One of the most active members of the Sri Lankan independence movement. The effort made by S. Mahinda Thera to give Lankans their freedom song was immense.

Facilitated by Connaissance de Ceylan and Theme Resorts and Spa, this visit of the kin of a great national hero on Sri Lankan Independence Day reminds all Sri Lankans freedom fighters to whom they owe their true freedom.
