Ruwanweli Maha Seya crest gem unveiled

The crest-gem fixed on the newly gold plated pinnacle of the Anuradhapura Ruwanweli Maha Seya was unveiled at the auspicious time of 9.55 am yesterday by the Most Venerable Maha Nayaka Theras of the Malwathu and the Asgiri Chapters amidst Seth Pirith and thousands of devotees.

About 600,000 devotees had reportedly paid homage to the new Chuda Manikkaya from November 22 to 25.

The crest-gem with 4,420 blue and ruby gems fixed on its golden base weighing 26kg pure gold was crowned on the top of the gold plated pinnacle.

The Vishwa Parami Foundation volunteered to contribute to the pinkama and replaced the cracked, discoloured old one with the new Chuda Manikkaya.
