Galenda Rajamaha Rajamaha Viharaya at Ambalantota is an ancient temple which has been forgotten by the general public for centuries. Only the fallen rock pillars which once proudly held buddhist buildings now bear witness  to the antiquity of the temple. A pair of  splendidly carved  Gurard Stone (Muragala) lies on the ground for weather worn for thousands of years.

Traveling towards Hambanthota from Ambalanthota, 2.4 km passing the Ambalanthota Main Bus Station, a road to left will take you to this rather unknown temple.
