Less than 2 kilometers away from the Ambalantota – Hambantota Road lies the ancient temple of Theraputta Rajamaha Viharaya.  Like hundreds of temples in this area, this ancient temple complex belongs to the ancient Ruhunu Kingdom which dates back to pre christian era.

Lying on the left bank of the Walawe River the temple has been modernized but granite pillars of ancient buildings and a new stupa built on an ancient stupa platform can be seen. An well preserved slab inscription carved on a square rock is the main highlight of the ancient ruins.
