The Poramadulla Ambalama is an old wayside rest situated near Poramadulla Central College in Kandy District, Sri Lanka. 

Ambalamas are traditional resting places built by locals to accommodate wayfarers who were travelling to distant places. The Ambalama at Poramadulla, as mentioned on the wall of it, has been built on 30 April 1923 by a person named Nan Ediri (Dasanayaka, 2018).

This is a square-shaped building with four large pillars at the corners (Dasanayaka, 2018). By connecting these pillars, a short wall runs around it. The four-sided roof is paved with Calicut tiles.
