The remains of a palace complex lie at the village of Galabedde (Galebedda), 10.5 km from Monaragala on the Pottuvil road. This includes an interesting sluice gate pond, moats, ramparts and the remains of a palace thought to be of a local princess Sugala Devi dating from the 12th century A.D.

The pool of the princess in the palace garden is one of the masterpieces of ancient Sinhala architecture. The pool is made out of solid rock with four water inlets from four sides. The water flows in the pond through the mouth of the mythical creature, ‘Makara’.

On one side of the pool lies an attractively carved toilet stone probably found among the ruins
