Ketawala Ambalama Wathumulla
Surrounded by paddy fields, in a picture's location, The Ketawala Ambalama in Wathumulla is an ancient wayside rest in between Yakkala and Gampaha. You cant drive to the location of the Ambalama. but a lovely short walk ( See approaching road in the photos)
“On this journey I glimpse an ancient ambalama deserted now, abandoned walls part hidden by unkempt mana grass, trees and thickets, half-walls open to the elements yet the roof tiles patterned in diamond shapes still set firmly on the wooden roof beams.”
Jean Arasanayagam has compiled a collection of poems titled, “Searching For An Ambalama.”
