Another Raja sick….

The famous Gangarama temple ( in Colombo) elephant, known as Raja, who carries the Scared Tooth Relic in the annual Gangaramaya Perehera held in the city of Colombo in February each year, is ailing with a stomach illness. He is being treated by vets under the careful eye of the Chief Priest, the Venerable Galaboda Gnanissa Thero, who himself is well versed in handling elephants.

 

Raja who had collapsed on his side due to his weak state was propped up with scaffoldings, and his condition was reported to have somewhat improved overnight
