Allakolla Estate Sumaithangi Stone lies inside the Alakola Estate in Kosgama Gramasewaka Division of Panvila Divisional Secretariat of Kandy District. The structure lies right next to the road thus difficult to miss. The horizontal stone has fallen off and lies on the ground.

To reach this site from Kandy, travel up to Huluganga town and from there take the narrow road from the town to Allakolla Estate. Travelling 2.1 km on this road will bring you to this picturesque site on the left.

Sumaithangi Stone structures also written as (Sumaithaangi, Sumai Thangi, Sumai Thaangi) are called “Load Brearer Stones”. As the name implies these structures are meant for use by travellers carrying heavy loads of goods to load and unload the luggage without the help of another.

Sumaithangi is a concept popular in India among the Hindu culture and was imported to Sri Lanka with Indian migrations in the past. Therefore these are mostly found in madams in Jaffna and areas where Tamils live.
