I came up with this idea back in December 2008 when I visited Lankathilaka Rajamaha Viharaya in Gampola, an ancient temple built by King Buwanekabahu the 4th in the 14th Century AD. I was amazed by the temple's unique eco-system and its remarkable paintings, architectural designs, and crafts. This experience led me to wonder how many unknown Buddhist religious places existed in Sri Lanka. I began collecting information and visiting both ancient and modern Sri Lankan Buddhist places.
After completing my GCE Ordinary Level Examination in 2009, I immediately created a Facebook page named "Buddhist Places In Sri Lanka," which started as a small-scale project but has now grown into a large-scale project. We publish information about Sri Lankan Buddhist temples, mainly focusing on images, which helps people quickly gain an idea of the temple's history and beauty. Our target audience is foreigners who enjoy visiting historical places and can plan a well-organized trip to Sri Lanka after analyzing our images and information.
Our main objectives are to provide correct and reliable data and information about Sri Lankan Buddhist places, to promote unpopular Sri Lankan Buddhist sites, and to contribute to the tourism industry of Sri Lanka. We have managed to build a fan base of around 40,000 local and foreign people and have received positive feedback from many foreigners worldwide. However, our experience on social media has shown that 99% of Sri Lankans are not interested in the historical values of these sites and only appreciate their beauty. Despite this, we are proud to say that this is the first Facebook page in the world that focuses on Sri Lankan Buddhist religious sites.
This is the official website of the Buddhist Places in Sri Lanka project. Although Facebook was the initial platform we chose to reach a wide audience, we realized that it's not enough as not everyone uses Facebook.
To provide more accessibility, we organized our albums by provinces and districts in alphabetical order on the website. We don't just provide images and descriptions, but also Geo-Locational maps, videos, nearby accommodations, museums, and more. Additionally, we share images of Buddhist festivals and events.
We made sure to make the website user-friendly, ensuring that anyone can easily access information. Our website is now among the top 10 search results for Sri Lankan Buddhist Places.
My website, Around Thambapanni, showcases my personal photo collection of Sri Lanka captured from 2008 to the present day. The collection includes not only images of Buddhist religious sites, but also of other categories such as rivers, waterfalls, wild animals, botanical gardens, memorials, museums, beaches, festivals, events, forts, and non-religious buildings etc.
All the albums are hosted on Google Photos and arranged alphabetically by district for easy reference. My primary goal with this project is to promote tourism in Sri Lanka, both for foreign visitors and for inspiring locals to explore their own country.
The History of SL (HOSL) project began in September 2012 as a blog dedicated to Sri Lankan history. It covers important periods from prehistoric times to the 1848 freedom fight, and also includes the syllabus of Advanced Level Sri Lankan History in schools. The blog is aimed at the younger generation, and its specialty is analyzing data and information logically, rather than relying solely on history books and legends.
It is crucial to research historical information before accepting it, as legends can change over time, and authors may deliberately alter details. As a result, the HOSL team follows critical path methods when taking historical records from books. By thinking differently and logically, new perspectives on Sri Lankan history can be revealed.
In addition to articles, the blog features images, videos, and related sources.
දනාගේ පලා මල්ල is one of my most popular projects, which I started in mid-March 2013.
I believe that everyone has a unique story to tell, and "Dhanaa's Journal" is my life story. It encompasses the stories that I have personally experienced, heard, and seen with my own eyes.
The main aim of this project is to share my experiences and knowledge with others. I have organized my stories into various categories, including village life, school life, ancestry, university life, research, expeditions, and travel.
Welcome to my Technical Blog! This blog stands out from the rest with its unique and specialized content. All the articles featured in this blog are strictly dedicated to Technical matters.
Furthermore, this blog is exclusively written in the English language to cater to a wider audience. Another specialty that sets this blog apart is its targeted readership. This blog is specifically designed for individuals with knowledge and interest in technical subjects.
I am delighted to have received positive feedback and rave reviews from my readers. My primary aim for this project is to provide detailed tutorials, insightful guidance, and share my extensive knowledge on web designing technologies to beginners.
In the charming town of Boralesgamuwa stands the majestic Paramadharmawardhanarama Buddhist Temple, which was founded in 1929. The unwavering dedication and hard work of the residents of Raththanapitiya, Boralesgamuwa, and Egodawatta led to the creation of this magnificent temple.
The temple's tranquil surroundings have a calming effect on all who visit, showcasing the sacred and serene beauty of the land with a documented history that dates back over 600 years.
Paramadharmawardhanaramaya is not only a temple but a symbol of our village's heritage. Its official website, Paramadhamma.org, is a comprehensive online database that contains a wealth of information about our village and temple. From the history of the temple and our village to recent and historical images, events, projects, and societies, the website provides a complete overview of everything related to the temple.
The ultimate goal of this project is to create an all-inclusive online platform that encapsulates the essence of our temple, preserves our history, and fosters a sense of community among visitors and locals alike.
This is the official Facebook page of Paramadharmawardhanaramaya Temple. Our mission is to promote the temple and its teachings to the vibrant and dynamic Sri Lankan community on Facebook, particularly the young generation residing in the vicinity.
Our page is a hub of activity, featuring stunning images of the temple, timely updates and notices about special programs, projects, upcoming events, and daily news. We take pride in having a growing and engaged fan base, and we are dedicated to sharing the timeless wisdom and values of Buddhism with all those who seek it.
Join us on this spiritual journey, and let us inspire and uplift each other with our collective wisdom and compassion.
I have developed a beautiful mobile application for the Paramadharmawardhanaramaya Temple. The application provides users with all the necessary information about the temple's daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly programs, as well as upcoming events. It's a convenient way for people to stay updated and connected with the temple.
I manage the official TripAdvisor page of Paramadharmawardhanaramaya Temple. Our profile features a curated selection of images showcasing the serene beauty and cultural significance of the temple.
Our primary aim is to promote the temple as a must-visit tourist destination among travellers from around the world. We strive to provide accurate and helpful information about the temple's history, architecture, events, and other attractions to potential visitors.
Take a look at my Instagram profile to see a stunning collection of photographs showcasing the natural beauty and cultural richness of Sri Lanka. These photos are part of my photography project called "Around Thambapanni," where I carefully curate and share only the best images with my followers.
My main goal is to attract a large following and promote the profile worldwide to expose people to the unique wonders of this beautiful country. By sharing these breathtaking photos, I hope to inspire a greater appreciation and understanding of Sri Lanka's captivating charm and allure.
Presenting my YouTube channel, where you can immerse yourself in a diverse range of content. From captivating podcast sessions, insightful documentary videos, and engaging interview sessions to videos showcasing Sri Lankan History, Archaeological Sites, Events, Festivals, Nature and more. Get ready to explore and discover the hidden gems of this beautiful island through my channel.
Prior to developing a website, we create various artworks and web templates which we present to our clients and university lecturers. Based on their feedback, we then proceed to design the second version of the web template.
My journey as a UI Designer began in 2015 and I have since amassed a complete collection of web templates. I showcase all of my artworks on Behance, a leading online platform for displaying and discovering creative works. Behance has become the go-to platform for creative professionals to share their work with a wider audience, attracting millions of visitors looking to discover and analyze top talents.
Through this project, I aim to share my knowledge of UI, as well as provide innovative design ideas for those who are new to the field.
In today's world, most people have abandoned the use of traditional journals or diaries, opting instead to share their daily stories on social media platforms like Facebook. While some share stories to entertain their friends, others aim to educate or inform their followers. There are also those who use their daily stories as a means of self-promotion or to pose as intellectuals.
Given that many of us travel long distances on foot or by public transportation every day, we have launched an online journal called "යමින් එමින් ගමන්". Our journal is based on our daily experiences, and we aim to share our thoughts and opinions with others. It's worth noting that this is a group project, and my partner in this endeavor is Darshana Prabath Dharmawardhana.
My Facebook profile serves as an online encyclopedia, covering a wide range of topics including politics, religion, culture, society, economics, and technology in both Sri Lanka and the world. Previously, I used my Google+ profile for this purpose but had to migrate to Facebook after Google+ shut down in 2019.
Although this is my personal profile, I only share posts with my friends, and everything I share is related to my online encyclopedia project. By sharing my knowledge and insights on various topics, I aim to educate and inform my friends and followers on important issues and developments.
I am delighted to be part of the team behind the online revival of the Siri Pagnananda Dhamma School at Boralesgamuwa Paramadharmawarchanaramaya Temple. The school had to pause its operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but we have come together to make sure that the students can continue their education through online means. It is a small effort, but a crucial one in these difficult times.
I launched this project on the 20th of October, 2018 to help people and animals who are suffering from various problems. The blog contains information and data about those who are seeking assistance. If you are interested in helping them, you can refer to the posts and contact them using the provided contact details.
The posts on the blog are categorized into several sectors, such as Blood Requirements, Kidney Requirements, Monetary Donations, Material Donations, Pets, and more.
Apart from helping those in need, another objective of this project is to bring together a community of Blogspot users who are willing to assist each other.
Humans are capable of experiencing and achieving more than gods and goddesses. We have the ability to feel emotions such as sadness and happiness. Unfortunately, there are individuals who have never experienced happiness or are currently struggling to achieve it.
Children living in rural areas often attend underfunded schools with a lack of resources and teachers. As a result, these children suffer from poverty and are unable to access proper education. We believe it is our responsibility to help these children and provide them with the necessary tools for a successful future.
By lending a hand to these less privileged children in rural areas, we can make a difference and give them hope for a brighter future. They deserve the same opportunities for happiness and success as everyone else.
We invite you to contribute to this cause and make a difference in these children's lives. Our team at "Gurukula Arunalu" will ensure that every donation is delivered to the children in need. Remember, even the smallest contribution can make a significant impact.
I am excited to introduce you to the official Instagram page of Paramadharmawardhanaramaya Temple! As the person in charge of this page, my main goal is to showcase the temple's beauty, culture, events, and programs through a carefully curated selection of images.
With each post, I hope to gather more followers and spread awareness of the temple around the globe. Whether you are a devoted follower or simply interested in learning more about the temple, I invite you to join us on this journey through the lens of Instagram.
I am the proud author of several articles on eLearning.lk, an E-Library that hosts an extensive collection of articles written by various authors. Our blog caters to a wide range of categories and subjects, providing a vast source of information to readers from all walks of life.
Whether you are interested in history, science, technology, health, lifestyle, or any other topic, you are sure to find something informative and engaging on our platform. I am honored to contribute to this valuable resource and be part of a community that is committed to sharing knowledge and promoting lifelong learning.
I have a podcast channel where I broadcast interviews, discussions, and talk shows on various topics. I invite guests who are experts or have interesting perspectives on different subjects to share their thoughts and knowledge with my audience. I believe that podcasts are a great way to learn and engage with others, and I enjoy creating and sharing content through this medium.
