Kottimulwela Rajamaha Viharaya

Kottimulwele Rajamaha Viharaya can be considered as one which contributes to the
historical importance of Balangoda.


 This Viharaya was constructed during the reign of king walagamba. It is stated in the
chronicles that king walagamba fled from his enemies and hid in this area.

Hence this Viharaya was constructed here. Today Buddhist monks of every sect occupy this Viharaya.
