Overview
Devagiri Raja Maha Vihara in Bingiriya is one of the ancient temples in Sri Lanka. It is situated in Kurunegala District in the North Western Province. The temple is situated on the Chilaw-Kurunegala Road 16 miles off Chilaw and 16 miles off Hettipola. One has to travel about 1.6 km off the main road to reach the temple. Colombo International Airport is within the distance of about one hour’s drive from the temple.
The history of the temple dates back to about 3rd Century BC. At that time the traders from a nearby boat harbour called Sala Thota (now known as Chilaw) have passed this place on their way to and from the harbour. According to the legends they placed a casket of relics for worship in this place which later developed as a temple.
