Ipalogama is a remote village in Kurunegala district about 50 km away from Kurunegala town. Agriculture is the predominant livelihood of the villagers with paddy being the main crop.  Until a few years ago, the Tampita Viharaya at Bodhirukkaramaya was limited to a set of stone pillars. The building on the pillars had finally completely fallen apart leaving only the pillars.

A few years ago, the chief incumbent of the temple Ipalogama Rathanasara Thero instituted an effort to rebuild the tampita viharaya with the support of the Department of Archaeology. The viharaya was rebuilt starting from scratch and was completed recently with all the traditional features of such a structure.

To reach the temple from Kurunegala, travel up to Padeniya on the Puttalam road and turn towards Anuradhapura. Travel 20 km along this road up to Daladagama Junction and turn to the left towards Nikaweratiya. Travel on this road for 4 km and turn towards Ipalogama village. Travelling a further 1.2 km on this road will bring you to the Bodhirukkaramaya Viharaya in Ippalogama.
