Nawala Chandawimala (Resident monk of the Siddhaththaramaya, Nawala) and Ven. Nahalle Rahula ( A senior pupil of Ven.

The opening ceremony of the centre was held on the 20th August 2000 with the blessings from the most Ven. Madagama Wajiragnana (Head of the London Buddhist Vihara) and the Venerable monks from other Buddhist Temples in the UK.
