 Thousands of devotees were seen yesterday carrying out religious observances on Poson Poya, which marks the visit of the Ven. Arahath Mahinda and his disciples to Mihintale. The devotees clad in white took part in religious observances such as Buddha Poojas, sermons and meditation in the Buddhist Temples at Anuradhapura, Mihintale and Thanthirimale. Alms were provided by the State and voluntary organizations.  

The precincts of Sri Maha Bodhiya, Mahamevuna Uyana and Ruwanweli Seya were packed with devotees performing religious rituals.
