Kandy monasteries reject state diktat on Vesak Featured

The two main monasteries Malwatta and Asgiri will proceed with Upasampada rituals, or higher ordinations, from May 29, Vesak Day to June 27, the Poson Poya Day. 

The two viharayas do not accept April 29, as Vesak Day, which they claim is the work of a misguided astrologer.
