Parawahera Ambalama is a brick and mortar wayside rest lying 9 kms from Matara on the Ratmale Road. Ambalama is a way side rest built during the times of kings at various strategic places on popular routes for the weary traveler to rest or sleep the night.
Many of the Ambalam found today had been built during the Kandyan kingdom. Some were built using granite and wood exquisitely carved with various designs popular during this era. But later, aesthetics lost its importance and they were just built for their utilitarian value. Parawahera is one such ambalama lacking any effort made to its aesthetics.
