Dewales the name given to temples in Ceylon in which Brahminical deities are worshipped. Entrance to them is forbidden to Europeans. "In the sanctum are the armlets or foot-rings of Pattine, or the weapons of the other deities, with a painted screen before them; but there are no images, or none that are permanently placed; in some' of the ceremonies temporary images are made of rice, or of some other material equally perishable." — Hardy, Eastern Monachism, page 201.
