The four novice monks who had lost their way while inside the Maduru Oya Forest were found this morning by the Police and the Army during a search operation launched by them.

The four monks attached to the Danajaya Raja Maha Viharaya in Kandegama had lost their way after entering the forest located behind the temple on Sunday. When they had not returned, the temple’s chief prelate had lodged a police complaint that the four monks had gone missing.
