The Dharmaraja Wesak Pandol which is hoisted annually at the Hill Top of Dharmaraja College was put up this year too. The Pandol which is organized by the Buddhist Association of Dharmaraja College has a long history of nearly 50 years.

The Wesak Pandol which is being put up at the highest point of Kandy town could be viewed from every corner of the Kandy Town.

Mr Gamini the Electrical Technician from the village who has been assisting to hoist and wire the Pandol, claims over 25 years of association with the Pandol, after taking over the task from his father.
