Mawanella  Udumahana Ambalama is a small ambalama made out of brick and mortar. The building is square  in its plan and four large pillars hold the roof of the building. The pillars are square at the bottom and changes to a cylindrical shape halfway.  A short  wall goes around the building. This wall also serves as the seating benches to the traveler.

The roof is tiled with semi cylindrical clay tiles (sinhala ulu) and the typical “Kanimadala” design of a square ambalama can be seen in designing the roof. The building seems to have been gone through a restoration process in the recent past.

Mawanella  lies about 92 kilometers from Colombo.
