Commemorative Stamp, First Day Cover to mark the famous Tusker

65-year-old Nadungamuwa Raja, the tallest elephant in Sri Lanka and the only tusker with his own armed guards was immortalized in print today when a commemorative stamp and first day cover was issued. Raja is an unofficial national treasure because he is one of the few tuskers chosen to carry a casket of Buddha relics at the annual Kandy perahera.
