Colombo, April 2 (Daily Mirror) - In accordance with a decision at the Cabinet meeting held on February 19, approval was granted to hand over the Ehelepola Walawwa to the Temple of the Tooth Relic (Sri Dalada Maligawa). 

The decision was taken after the President and Secretary had been informed to discuss this matter with all the relevant parties and submit a report with recommendations for Cabinet approval.

Accordingly, the report has recommended that the Ehelepola Walawwa be transferred to the Temple of the Tooth Relic since a project has been prepared by the Temple, aiming to present information on history in a more attractive way to the present society by establishing a museum in this building to represent the great historical and environmental background of the Kingdom of Kandy that existed hundreds of years ago.

It has also been recommended that the Ehelepola Walawwa be converted into a wax museum that reflects the past historic culture and represents all historic facts with the target of attracting local and foreign tourists. 

Accordingly, the Cabinet approved the proposal presented by the President to hand over the Ehelepola Walawwa and the grounds to the Temple of the Tooth Relic through a title deed of sacred premises.

    The decision is good. The income generated must be used to provide conveniences to the pilgrims and to give a helping hand to the poor. Maligawa has enough money for its use

    Unacceptable to hand over public owned lands to private organisation Tuesday, 02 April 2024 04:50 PM

    The land is public owned. It is worth more the the public closed, rather than hand to Dalada Maligawa which is private organisation. No sane publicly accountable government would do such dastardly act to give over public land to religious group.

    It has to be under the Ministry of Culture. This place has to do a lot with our history!

    Thank God Rajapasas are not holding the Presidency. If not, this would have been another private massage parlour for the Rajapaksa family.
