Maduwanwela Walawwa in Sri Lanka

Maduwanwela Walawwa is a historical landmark in Sri Lanka. It is located in the Maduwanwela, Kolonna area between Embilipitiya and Suriyakanda in the Ratnapura District of Sabaragamuwa Province. This Walawwa is away approximately 207 km from Colombo.

King Wimaladharmasuriya II (1687-1706 A.D.) gave the land of this Walawwa with a deed to the Maduwanwela Maha Mohottala, and he built this Walawwa in the 1700s. Then, in the reign of King Veera Parakrama Narendrasingha (1725 A.D), Maduwanwela Wijayasundara Ekanayake Abayakoon Mudhiyanse converted this Walawwa into a permanent building. After, it was expanded several times by the Maduwanwela family until 1905. The final expansion was undertaken by Wickramasingha Wijayasundara Ekanayake Abayakoon Mudhiyanse Ralahamilage Sir James Williams Maduwanwela Maha Disawe (1877-1905 A.D.).
