New Temples

New Temples are being built and consecrated. This one was built by a very elderly lady who sold all her property and used the money to build the Temple. She became a nun. She is now towards 100 and is cared for by her daughter and she lives at this Temple with her cats. Many pilgrims come to visit as it is in the Anaradhapura area.
