Ambagaspitiya Gallindawatta Ambalama is a wayside rest built on granite pillars in Mahara Divisional Secretariat. The ambalama is situated in a paddy fileld known as Gallindawatta. An ancient well built with granite near the ambalama has given the name for this block of land.
The ambalama is built on a small square granite platform. The roof is held by four granite pillars with alternating 4 sided and 8 sided shape. The top and the bottom of the pillar is square and slightly larger at the base. The roof is tiles with semi cylindrical barrel clay tiles (sinhala ulu) which is probably a later restoration.
This ambalama was declared as a protected archaeological monument in 2002.
