Kande Viharaya is known as Kasāgala. According to folklore, it is believed to have been a hideout for King Walagamba between 101 – 78 B.C. About a kilometer away from the Raja Maha Viharaya, a scenic mountain top can be witnessed. Carved boiling vats are seen on this rock cave with a length of about 150 feet along with a huge door. Inside, an 18-cubit Sleeping Buddha statue is seen together with two other Buddha statues in sitting posture.

A Vishnu-Kataragama Devale is located at the deep end of the cave. There is evidence to believe that the cave situated below the Len Viharaya had been King Walagamba’s palace at the time. Seen outside this cave is a roof-like overhang with a boiling vat carved on it. Many statues including those of the Bodhisatva, Arahat monks Sariputta (Sariyuth) and Moggallana (Mugalan) as well as ancient frescoes inspire a sense of deep respect and devoutness.This temple is affiliated to the Suduhugampola Raja Maha Viharaya, under the Asgiriya Maha Viharaya in Kandy.
