A pandal is structure, either temporary or permanent, in a religious context.

In Hinduism, it is a temporary structure set up to venerate the goddess Durga during Durga Puja.

In Sri Lanka, Vesak thorang pandals are set up during the Vesak festival, with illuminated panels illustrated with episodes from the life of the Gautama Buddha. Pandals are also set up during Gammaduwa (village rebirth) festivals, honouring the goddess Pattini.

Pandal (mandat in Burmese) also refers to platforms from which people splash water during the Buddhist festival Thingyan.

A pandal can also be a ceremonial gate, built to welcome visitors.
