According to Mr. G.A.D. Sirimal, who has quoted historical sources, the Madhu Church site had been a Pattini Devale in the past. He says that the site is therefore sacred to Buddhists and Hindus. Fine. It is not this site that is sacred to the Catholics. Rather it is the Statue of the Blessed Virgin that is sacred.
