Getakulama Ambalama at Rikillagaskada is a small ambalama made out of brick and mortar. The building is square  in its plan and four large pillars hold the roof of the building. The pillars are built using granite blocks held together by cement. ‘ A half hight wall goes around the building.

The roof is tiled with semi cylindrical clay tiles (sinhala ulu) and the typical “Kanimadala” design of a square ambalama can be seen in designing the roof. A clay pinnacle lies at the center of the roof as in most Ambalamas.


Rikillagaskada lies about 37km from Kandy town and 5 kilometers pass Hanguranketha town. From  Hanguranketha take Dimbulkumbura road for 1 km to reach the Getakulama junction where the Ambalama is located.
