The ruins at the deserted Helamulla Degalhela Viharaya at the foot of the Degalhela Rock is another unexplored and unknown ancient Buddhist site in Siyambalanduwa.

Degalhela has been so named due the two fused rocks which makes the Degalhela mountain range. The Helamulla Degalhela temple lies at the foot of the mountain and said to be deserted.  The temple is scattered with ruins of an  ancient temple which had existed thousands of years ago at this location.

To reach the Degalhela Temple you would need to take the Ampara Road from Siyambalanduwa and travel up to the 7th km post and turn to right at the new court complex of Siyambalanduwa which also leads to the Katupelellegala  Ruins.
