Ambalama - Godamunne, Sri Lanka

Ambalama's are old buildings that were setup as wayside rests to be used by travels and can be found throughout the country. The ambalama in Godamunne is said to have been built using pillars from the Hanguranketha Palace which was destroyed by the  Dutch in the 17th century. The pillars themselves have ornate carvings on them but they have been damaged over time.
