Diva Guhawa is a cave temple around 15 km from Ratnapura. The name literally means heavenly cave. It is said that Lord Buddha rested here after marking his footprint at Sri Pada (Adam's Peak). The huge cave is said to have sheltered him and his 500 disciples. It is supposed to be one of the nine places Buddha had visited during his third visit to the Sri Lanka.
