St. Jude Thaddaeus Church (Sinhala: ශාන්ත ජූඩ් සිද්ධස්ථානය, ඉඳිගොල්ල) is situated in Indigolla village in Gampaha District, Sri Lanka. The shrine is dedicated to Saint Jude, one of the 12 Apostles of Jesus.

Constructed in 1952, the old shrine of Indigolla church was blessed and initiated by the Rev. Dr Thomas Cardinal Cooray, the first Sri Lankan Archbishop as well as the first Cardinal of Sri Lanka. The shrine is said to have been constructed within a period of three years due to the attempts by Father Philip Dissanayake. The new shrine of the church, initiated by Father Elmo Dias in commemorating the church's Golden Jubilee, was blessed by Rev. Oswald Gomis in 2003.
