Maspotha Ambalama (Metiyagane Ambalama) is located at a distance of 4.5 km from Alawwa town and 5.7 km from Nelumdeniya on the Beligala road. Located in the edge of a beautiful paddy field, this ambalama is made of kabok stone and plaster. There is also a well nearby for Ambalama users.
Buddhist Era 1497 is marked on the well. Therefore, this Ambalama can be considered as completed in 1953. However it has undergone a renovation in the recent past.
Other than being one of the Ambalams in the Ambalam Network which existed in ancient Sri Lanka, there is no artistic value in this structure.
