Ceylon & Sri Lanka Stamps Banknotes Coins, Seminary Ampitiya (1)

Collection of Stamps for Sri Lanka (& Ceylon before 1972). Collectors items related to Seminary Ampitiya. The National Seminary of Sri Lanka, situated at Ampitiya in the City of Senkadagala (Kandy) is the main training institution for the formation of Catholic priesthood in Sri Lanka. Though this institution celebrates the Golden Jubilee of its existence it's inception by way of buildings goes back to the nineteenth century. It was His Holiness Pope Leo the Thirteenth, who decided to establish a centre for training of persons for the priesthood for all the candidates of South Eastern Asia. These candidates would be nationals from Asian countries. The Seminary was thus established in 1893 and its history has two periods to be recognised. One is from its inception to 1955 and the other spans from 1955 to the present day. In the first period the Seminary was known as the Papal Seminary indicating that it was the Pope's own Seminary. The Centre, during these decades, catered specially to the needs of Sri Lanka, India and Burma.
