Edagala Forest Hermitage is situated at a ancient cave temple site on the Udawalawe – Thanamalwila Road. The hermitage has been so named due a bed carved on a rock underneath a cave. Drip ledges have been carved on all the caves of this hermitage, an indication that this site has been occupied by similar forest dwelling meditating monks thousands of  years ago.

Few Km’s along Udawalawe road and 2 km before Thanamalwila Junction there is an area called Komaligama and to the left there is a road which leads towards Endagala hermitage. Remember that this is an functioning hermitage thus the meditating bikkus should not be disturbed.
