The Sri Lanka Navy celebrates 64th anniversary today, giving prominence to religious activities.

The main Buddhist religious ceremony will be held at the Dalada Maligawa in Kandy.

The current Sri Lankan Navy was established on 9th December 1950 when the Navy Act was passed for the formation of the Royal Ceylon Navy.

The roots of the modern Sri Lankan Navy date back to 1937 when the Ceylon Naval Volunteer Force was established, which was renamed and absorbed into the Royal Navy as the Ceylon Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve during World War 2.
