Navy assists Nainativu Island temple festival

The annual High Festival of Sri Nagapoosani Amman Temple began on July 2 in Nainativu Island.

As in previous years, a large number of devotees are arriving for this year’s festival too.

Under the directives of the Navy Commander Vice Admiral Piyal De Silva and with the supervision of Northern Naval Commander Rear Admiral Kapila Samaraweera, naval personnel of the command provide their assistance in numerous ways for making the festival a success.

The SLNS Elara Commanding Officer has been appointed as overall coordinator of the event.

Naval assistance is extended in a wide range of ways from providing sea transportation for VIPs, coordinating the ferry service between Kurikadduwan and Nainativu, providing drinking water for devotees, arranging safe bathing locations, life-saving assistance for devotees, and providing pier security and security checks.

Sri Lanka Navy will assist the annual festival which is scheduled to finish on July 17, the Navy media unit said.
