The Yatawara Gal Ambalama is an old wayside rest situated in the Yatawara area in Kandy District, Sri Lanka. 

Ambalamas are traditional resting places built by locals to accommodate wayfarers who were travelling to distant places. The Yatawara gal Ambalama is believed to be one such structure built in the beginning of the 20th century. 

The Ambalama is built on 4 granite pillars and one of the pillars contains an inscription with the year 1903.
