It is believed that the founder of the Veherahena Purvarama Rajamaha Viharaya, Ven. Paravahera Revatha Thero, visited the Veherahena Viharaya this year. He has come to this place from the Matara Maha Mantinada Pirivena. That time has been a very difficult time. When he arrived at this place he had brought only a mat, a blanket and a Pathra.
