The site is located on the A9 highway to start short hiking to the rocks of Wasammale. Wasammala was the hideout of Prince Pandukabhaya. His uncle was searching for him since it had been foretold that he would destroy all of them and become the future king.


The interesting remnants of rock paintings are supposed to be from the Kandyan period.
