Kubulumulla Devalaya is a shrine devoted to Goddess Pattini as a tribute by the King Seethawaka Rajasinghe in 1582. At present, part of this shrine is offered to God Ganegoda who is believed to be the reincarnation of the King Seethawaka Rajasinghe.
As the things for worship there is Pattini Salaba; a musical ornament worn by the goddess and a sandle-wood bed-head, the sword and shield and the knife used by the king is preserved in the shrine.
This shrine is situated on a small mountain about 1km off Karawanella junction on the Colombo - Hatton main road. The environment is so attractive with shady iron-wood (Na) trees as well as other trees on the background. Entrance to the Devale is a granite gate covered for protection by curtains. To reach the entrance there is a set of granite steps.
The Devalaya is open for worship only on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Among the devotees who come to pay homage pregnant mothers as well as others carrying small babies are frequent as all of them worship Goddess Pattini to get her blessings over them.
People look up to God Ganegoda as one who will punish for any wrong thing they do. So they are a bit afraid of this god.
As a mark of respect to the Goddess Pattini & God Ganegoda annually there is a traditional esala perahera. This starts from the devale and proceed up to Wendala temple and back.
Over 1000 artists mainly dancers of various types Kandyan, low-country & sabaragamu take part in this perahera which gives a scenic view with about 25 elephants including tuskers walking majestically.
