Comments / pictures

Mr. S.R.S. Millangoda had purchased this tusker when it was 4 years of age, from a public auction at Dehiwala Zoological Garden.

The tusker has taken part in multiple processions of Buddhist temples across the island. Since 2016, it has carried the sacred relics at the Esala Perahera of Dalada Maligawa in Kandy for several years.

‘Millangoda Podi Raja’ carried the Sacred Tooth Relic casket for the first time in 2017, parading the Randoli Perahera of the historic Esala festival.
