Kadawedduwa Thunbodhi Viharaya is a Buddhist temple situated in Kadawedduwa in Matara District, Sri Lanka. 

This temple is said to have been constructed in 1754 (Wikramaratne, 2015). The paintings in the Vihara-ge (image house) as well as in the Dhamma-sala (preaching hall) show the features of the art tradition of the Kandyan Period (Wikramaratne, 2015). The year 1819 is mentioned in one of the paintings in the preaching hall (Wikramaratne, 2015).

A fragment of an inscription is found within the Stupa terrace (Wikramaratne, 2015).
