the renaming of the brahmanical Skandakumāra-devale at Kandy into a
Kataragama-devale must have happened at the beginning of the 19th
century according to my research. It is not very long ago but I was
without success to get any information about this issue. After the
renaming of the Skandakumāra-shrine into a Kataragama-shrine the
depictions of the original Kataragama are now vanishing and replaced by
pictures of Skandakumāra.
Maybe someone of you can provide some details on the name change?
Thank you in advance
