of Periyapachchilaipallai can now resume religious activities
at their Ganesh Kovil and Bahirava Devala since soldiers of the
5th Sri Lanka Light Infantry (5 SLLI) cleared the jungle grown
over and around the temple buildings.
Soldiers of 5 SLLI undergoing their annual training these days
at Kaddaikadu contributed their labour willingly to this meritorious
act taking a two days off from their training schedule on 6th
and 7th June.
The temple site remained inaccessible for religious activities
for years due to absence of civilians who had left the area during
the period of war.
Rev. Thasathurai Kurukkal of the temple also participated in the
Shramadana conducted with supervision of the Commander
553 Brigade Colonel S.P.V.S. Subasinghe.
