Over 2,000 temples to be developed

According to a latest survey conducted by the Buddhist Affairs Department, it has been revealed that about 2,000 remote Buddhist temples countrywide have no toilets, abodes or facilities to take meals to resident monks of the temples.

Accordingly, Kurunegala District UNP Parliamentarian and Buddhasana Minister Gamini Jayawickrama Perera told the Daily News in Kurunegala that the temples which have less basic facilities will be provided with facilities soon with the support of the Education Ministry, Prime Minister’s Office and the Presidential Secretariat. Minister Gamini Jayawickrama Perera added that about 2,469 temples that have no basic facilities have been assessed.
