Lyonchoen Tshering Tobgay who is on an official visit to Sri Lanka visited the Kelaniya Temple and Gangaramaya Temple on April 9. Lyonchoen also “watered” and offered “cloth” (Namza) to the Holy Bodhi Trees at Kelaniya and Gangaramaya Temples. At Gangaramaya temple , the Bhutanese delegation was delighted to find that the Fourth Druk Gyalpo had laid the foundation stone for the inauguration for the Bodhi Tree.
The Prime minister’s delegation hosted a reception dinner to the medical students studying in Colombo. Lyonchoen reminded the students of the responsibilities bestowed upon the people to take care of the country, whose foundation was laid by the Fourth Druk Gyalpo. “If we follow the path of our King, we will never go wrong,” Lyonchoen said.
Lyonchhen thanked the students for working hard to becoming doctors and advised them to make the best use of their stay in Sri Lanka. There are about 200 Bhutanese students in Sri Lanka.
