Student dance troupes daily opposite Maligawa

School dance troupes will be invited to perform traditional Kandyan dance opposite the sacred Dalada Maligawa for one hour every evening as a step to promote Hill Country cultural identity.

Central Province Governor Maithree Gunaratne said many had lamented that there was no place to showcase Kandyan dances. “I decided to allow the schoolchildren to perform opposite the Dalada Maligawa after taking their opinions into account,” he said.

Guneratme was addressing the media after meeting the Mahanayake Thera of Asgiriya in Kandy

He said the Mahanayake Theras of Malwatte and Asgiriya Chapters had given their consent to this programme and schoolchildren will perform opposite the Dalada Maligawa for one hour beginning from 4.30pm.
