Natha Devale Tours

Built by King Vikramabahu III during the fourteenth century, Natha Devale is one of Kandy’s oldest existing structures. Set on a stone terrace in front of the palace complex, the small temple is one of four located near the palace complex and Temple of the Tooth. Each temple is dedicated to a different god: Natha, Vishnu Kataragama and Patini. The God Natha, believed to be a bodhisattva who will one day become the next Buddha, is worshipped locally as the protector of Buddhism. The other three devales represent an interesting mix of Hindu and Buddhist traditions.

The grounds of the Natha Devale, much more serene than the nearby Temple of the Tooth, house a bodhi tree and a white dagoba where monks sometimes come to meditate.

Practical Info

Combine your visit to the Temple of the Tooth with the Natha Devale to make the most of your time in Kandy.
