Devanagala is an ancient royal temple located in the Mawanella area of the Kegalle District in the Sabaragamuwa Province of Sri Lanka. Devanagala is also known as the Dasen Vehera built during the reign of King Dhatusena during the Anuradhapura period when evidence of prehistoric times was found. Two inscriptions belonging to the Polonnaruwa and Kandy eras have also been found here. There is also a temple made of ruined stones. There are several sculptures and paintings belonging to the Kandyan period inside the Tampita temple.
Batalegala mountain is located near Devanagala. Legend has it that this stone became known as Devanagala because of this stone which was second to Batalegala and also because of the second visit of the stubborn god.
There are also several major monuments such as the Sanghavasa, the Dhanashala, a pond and the Siripathula. If we want to preserve these past heritages and pass on history to the future, we must preserve them. Visit the Ussapitiya Mawanella Devanagala Rajamaha Viharaya to see the heritage of the past.
