Dunuwille Walawwa
Dunuwille Walawwa (Sinhala: නුවර දුනුවිල වලව්ව) is an old manor house located on the Sri Dalada Thapowana street in Kandy, Sri Lanka.

This building initially belonged to James Alexander Dunuwille (1821-18?? A.D.), Deputy Queen's Advocate (Rajapakse, 2016). It was entrusted to the Kandy Municipal Council in March 1870 (Rajapakse, 2016). Presently, the building is used as the Kandy town hall, the headquarters of the municipal council.

It is a two-storied building with an inner courtyard on the upper floor (Rajapakse, 2016). Alterations have been made on some parts of the building (Rajapakse, 2016).
