Ruins of a stone pillared building have been observed at a place situated in the midst of a rice field in the village Nädigamvila on the right bank of Kirindi Oya. A large stone slab was found at the site. A mound situated at the site has several baked brick bats scattered on it and it is a ruined stupa. The exact dimensions of the building structures cannot be estimated due to their ruinous state. It seems ideally that these ruins represent an ancient village temple.
