In a small town in Matara, on a memorable day—July 4, 2012—something extraordinary took place. The G.G.A. Gunasena Foundation, known for its commitment to preserving cultural heritage, embarked on a noble mission at the historic Makavita Temple. Together with the local community, they constructed a magnificent “Pahan Geya,” a House of Light that would forever impact the spiritual journey of the temple and touch the hearts of the grateful residents.

The Pahan Geya stands tall, a symbol of unwavering devotion and the collaborative efforts of the foundation and the people of Matara. It is a sacred space, a beacon of light, within the serene surroundings of Makavita Temple. As the flickering glow of countless oil lamps illuminates the path, seekers find solace and spiritual growth within its walls.

The local community’s support played a pivotal role in making these dreams a reality. Through unity and shared responsibility, the construction expenses were covered, creating a sense of gratitude that permeates the air. The G.G.A. Gunasena Foundation’s generosity has left an indelible mark on the hearts of the people, who now have a lasting reminder of the power of collective efforts and the transformative nature of philanthropy.

Gunasena Foundation, with its unwavering commitment to educational, cultural, and spiritual endeavors, continues to uplift communities and foster a brighter future. The Pahan Geya at Makavita Temple stands as a testament to their dedication, to preserving cultural heritage and nurturing spiritual growth.

In the end, it is more than a building—it is a symbol of faith, hope, and unity. The Pahan Geya will forever shine its light on the path of those seeking solace and inspiration. The collaboration between the G.G.A. Gunasena Foundation and the local community has not only created a physical structure but has also ignited a sense of unity, gratitude, and appreciation for the profound impact of collective efforts.
