Year 2008 was the last time Millangoda Raja was able to carry the Relic. Then almost half a year before his death Millangoda Raja came under special veterinary treatment due to his old age. When the elephant was in the last stage of his life, many bottles of saline with vitamins had to be given. At the end no veterinary treatment worked. The elephant passed away in Millangoda Mansion.
