Buddhist Monks at the Dambulla cave temple stated that they will not let the temple close down. 

After the announcement regarding the temporary closure of the temple due to conservation and till the tourist visiting tickets are printed was made, locals and monks at the temple challenged the government on multiple grounds, at a press conference held  this morning (11). 

This included the newly appointed seat organizer threatening to resign from his position, if the temple was harmed in any way. 

The media briefing held in front of the temple was attended by Ven. Ambagas Wewe Rahula Thero, Ambuluwawe Wachiswara, Ven. Thalakiriyagama Upali Thero, chief custodian of the Sri Vishnu Maha Dewale K.G. Piyadasa and the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) organizer in Dambulla, U. R. Dayanandasiri.
