ComBank provides water & sanitation facilities to Sri Nagarukkarama Temple

The Commercial Bank of Ceylon recently provided the 135-year old Sri Nagarukkarama Temple in Kotikawatte, Angoda with water and sanitation facilities. Following a request from the custodian of the temple, the Bank constructed a 50-foot water tank storage tower with the capacity to hold 20,000 litres of water and accommodate four washrooms. 

The donation will benefit worshippers and students who frequent the temple which has hitherto received water supply only at nights, the Chief Incumbent, Ven. Badulle Mahanama Thero said. The ancient temple is home to a 14-foot gold plated Buddha statue from Thailand. Besides its regular worshippers, it is also attended by some 1300 children and 50 teachers who come to Dhamma classes on Sundays. Students from all communities in the locality also visit the temple to attend free English classes conducted there.
