Tampita Viharaya are the temples which have been built on pillars, a popular architectural design during the Kandyan Kingdom. Most of the time these pillars are made of granite.

Hulugalla Tampita Viharaya is located between Nikaweratiya and Daladagama. The Tampita Viharaya of the Hulugalla temple is a wooden structure built on 16 granite pillars. A wooden stair  takes you up to a ornate wooden door. An ancient Buddha statue with murals on the walls are weatherworn. The structure has not received due repairs for a while and seems on the verge of tumbling.
