Almost 50 foreign tourists, including French Nationals, who were visiting the Mihintale Rajamaha Vihara last night (03) have climbed the rock in burning torch light.
They have not been aware that the electricity has been cut off to the site.
The Ceylon Electricity Board cut off the electricity to the temple yesterday afternoon due to non-payment of an electricity bill amounting to Rs. 4.1 million.
