Deva Loka, also known by its Galactic Federation installed classification as S14, was a tropical jungle planet inhabited by the peaceful and telepathic Kinda. In addition to jungles, it had warm seas, multi-coloured birds, jeweled insects, and no predators, making it an ideal "paradise." (PROSE: Kinda)
A human expeditionary force was sent to Deva Loka to check its suitability for colonisation. Three members of the force — one of whom was named Roberts — went missing, presumably due to the Mara, who organised the Kinda to attack the expedition until it was repelled by the Fifth Doctor. Deva Loka was afterward reclassified as unsuitable for colonisation. (TV: Kinda) Deva Lokan wind chimes were, however, present aboard the Ice Warrior ship Bruk, meaning the planet was involved somewhat in the Federation circa 3985. (PROSE: Legacy)
Behind the scenes Edit
Along with the other Buddhist themes of Kinda, "Deva Loka" translates to "Land of the Gods."
