Treasure hunters damage two temples
Considerable damage has been caused to two temples in Rambukkana by
treasure hunters during the past two weeks.
The two temples were the Tampita Viharaya belonging to the Kandyan
era and the Daluggala Bodhirajaramaya. Most of the statues in these
temples have been broken by the intruders in their search for hidden
treasures while the pagoda of the Daluggala Bodhirajaramaya has also
been pillaged. Rambukkana Police are investigating.
