Hambegamuwa Viharaya

Hambegamuwa Viharaya
Hambegamuwa Raja Maha Viharaya, also known as Muthumala Purana Viharaya (Sinhala: හම්බෙගමුව රජ මහා විහාරය, මුතුමාල පුරාණ විහාරය), is a Buddhist temple situated in Hambegamuwa village in Monaragala District, Sri Lanka.

Although there is a new temple built near the road, in the rear of the temple, close to the Hambegamuwa Wewa stands a large ancient Stupa known as Muthumala Dagoba. The remains of old structures, flight of steps, pillars, and broken Buddha statues have been found at the site.
