From Nalanda’s Archives – In the year 2000, Sri Serdang hosted a visit by eminent Buddhist and Pāli Scholar, the Most Ven. Dr. K Anuruddha Nayaka Thero, the first Vice-Chancellor of the Buddhist & Pāli University of Sri Lanka.  The Venerable was highly respected for his vast learning in the Tipitaka and erudite teachings.  Ven.
