Padiwita Ambalama, and ancient wayside rest lies in middle of a paddy field in the Matale District. History of this Ambalama is not known but it can be presumed that this has been built during the Kandyan kingdom, before the British invasion.

The main route to Matale from Kandy may have been run through this paddy field at some time in the past for the Ambalama to be located here.  The Padiwita Ambalama is built on upon a platform raised by granite stumps held by four large wooden beams.  The wooden pillars which hold the roof is extensively carved.

The wooden pillars and carvings are said to be deteriorating due to lack of care from the authorities.

Alternate names : Padivita Ambalama
