Thus the Nahimige Kovila became known as Dodanvela Devale. Dedicated to a local god in the past, it is now dedicated to god Visnu.
The inner sanctum has no god image. Instead are portraits of two kings painted o wood, one of them probably of Rajasimha II. It also preserves two embroidered silk jackets said to be the Kings’s. A dozen swords and daggers, including one belonging to the King himself, and carved palanquin mounted in brass. A curious object here is a brass crown described as the crown of Vesamuni, the king of the demons.
