  • This is a important relegious place in this place

  • Important place for Buddhist

  • Nice place near the city center. We visited this during ceremony. It was fantastic

  • This is one of main devote of the four devotes participate to the Esala Perahara. This devote is the older than the temple of tooth relic . It is in front of the temple of the tooth (actually it has built in front of the palace after the tooth relic brought to the kandy temple build for the tooth relic) This devote has been formed behalf of god Natha. Most people believe that the god Natha is Bodhisathwa Awalokitheshwara who will be next Buddha.The ancient paintings of god Nath and the ancient paintings and statues in Tibbet and Japan of Bodhisathwa Awalokitheshwara looks like same.

  • Natha Devalaya is one of the main four devalayas in Kandy. This has been formed on behalf of the god named ‘Natha’ and people come here to worship him and seek good luck for various occasions. Situated just in front of the Sri Dalada Maligawa, within walking distance from the Kandy City Center.
