Devotees gathered at the Sri Maha Bodhi in Anuradhapura, lauded and rejoiced President Mahinda Rajapaksa's visit yesterday, to pay homage to the Sri Maha Bodhi.

The President obtained blessings from the Atamasthanadhipathi, the Most Venerable Pallegama Sirinivasa Thera.

President Rajapaksa visited the Sri Maha Bodhi, following his surprise call at the former LTTE administrative capital of Kilinochchi.
