Sirisena opens Lanka Patuna bridge

In a recent ceremony, President Maithripala Sirisena opened the Lanka Patuna bridge.

“The bridge which is 150 meters long, built under the supervision of Road Development Authority will facilitate the devotees who visit the Lanka Patuna temple,” the President’s webpage stated.

Renamed Lanka Patuna by the Sri Lanka government, the small Tamil village originally known as Ilankaithurai Mugaththuvaram, has become a spot for Southern tourists who come to visit the newly built Buddhist temples.
