Galle Heritage Foundation

Product Description

Our website was first launched in 2009 as the official web site of the Galle Heritage Foundation, which is a statutory institution functioning under the Ministry of National Heritage. At the beginning it functioned under the web address: galleheritage.lk. In 2013, it was revamped and now functions as www.galleheritage.gov.lk.

The Foundation was established by Act of Parliament No. 7 of 1994, as the local organization responsible for the management of the World Heritage Site of Galle Fort. The Foundation works in collaboration with institutions such as the Department of Archaeology, the Central Cultural Fund, the Urban Development Authority and the Galle Municipal Council, to preserve and maintain the colonial period architectural fabric of Galle Fort and its outstanding universal value, which won for it UNESCO World Heritage status in 1988.

The web site gives historical details and a pictorial view of Galle Fort together with details of the composition of the Board of Management and staff of the institution. It also gives particulars of the activities of the Foundation, its annual work plan, etc., in addition to useful facts regarding the district.

Punyagrama Web Portal

Product Description

The Punyagrama web portal maintains a religious, social and economical information management system with the capability to include data on more than 20,000 religious places in Sri Lanka. Contributing organisations benefit by being able to develop their websites and expand their products and services. The hope is also that the site information will be useful for school children and national and international tourists.

At present all the services are provided free of charge to the 2000 religious organization by the Ministry of Buddha Sasana and Religious Affairs.  The intention is to add 8000 more websites to the web portal by the end of year 2014.

Jurors’ Evaluation

The religious institutions in this country and their traditions are an integral part of Sri Lanka’s multifaceted and extremely rich cultural heritage. Often, detailed information about a particular site is not readily available and is known only to the people of that particular locality. Right now, there is not even a complete listing of all the religious organizations in the country. Within this context, the attempt by The Ministry to provide and facilitate a platform to start documenting the information is a timely endeavor. This site works as an information-sharing platform and provide facilities for religious institutions to self-register their basic information. In the long run this site can be a one-stop shop for information about a particular place of worship, even if it is located in a remote area of the country.

Helaugaya

Product Description

Legends, folk tales and historical information on the mythical and powerful King Ravana is collated and presented on this website to raise awareness among the public of a Sri Lankan King we should be proud of.

Jurors’ Evaluation

Folklore is an integral part of the rich historical heritage of Lanka. These stories handed down through generations are an important part of the oral traditions of this country and warrants proper documentation in an orderly manner. This website is rich in value as it digs deep into historical documents, oral traditions, sometimes from remote places of the island. In doing so, it unearths a rich cache and presents a broader fresh perspective of a legendary king of Sri Lanka.

An attempt to bring this collection deep rooted in historical and cultural traditions of the people, to a readily accessible medium is an important step taken by this website. It thus gives access to the public, both here and abroad about these legends and has created a platform for interaction and learning from each other.
