On February 18, 1922 Mudaliyar A.C.G.S. Amarasekera and a few self taught conjurors founded the Sri Lanka Magic Circle and since then many studied the art of magic which is accepted as a Fine Art in the cultural scenario. The Magic Circle celebrated 90 years on February 18, with religious ceremonies at the Magic Circle auditorium at 156 Templers Road, Mount Lavinia.
The Sri Lanka Magic Circle today is ‘the Official Guardian of Magic’ in Sri Lanka. In 2002 the Tower Hall Theatre Foundation together with the Cultural Ministry had accepted magic as a fine art and gifted an eight perch property at 156 Templers Road, Mt. Lavinia and the ground floor of the magic auditorium has been completed.
