Kevulgama Ambalama in Medamahanuwara is an ancient wooden wayside rest hidden faraway from the common road networks. Considerably small, the base of the structure is made of four large wooden beams raised from the ground. Four finely carved wooden pillars rising from the base holds the roof.
The Ambalama has been restored recently and the roof is tiled with semi cylindrical clay tiles (sinhala ulu) now. To reach the Ambalama travel to Hunnasgiriya from Kandy through Digana, Theldeniya and Rambukwella. From the Hunnasgiriya town take the Nugethanne road and travel for 750 meters and and take the left hand turn from the folk on to the Kevulgama Road. Travel 5 km on the Kevulgama road upto Kevulgama Gal Len Viharaya (Kevulgama Sri Dalada Gaman Viharaya). The ambalama lies just before the temple.
