The annual Kelaniya Duruthu Perahera was held from January 9 to 11 with the participation of President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe. The perahera was first held in 1927. Kelaniya Rajamaha Viharaya is the most sacred temple in the Western Province as Lord Buddha had stayed here during his third visit to Sri Lanka.
