An Ambalama (Sinhala: අම්බලම) is a place constructed for pilgrims, traders and travelers to rest in Sri Lanka. This is a simple structure designed to provide shelter for the travellers.[1] There were no charges involved in using an Ambalama.[2]

In literature

In Salalihini and Gira sandeshas, there are references to Ambalamas.[3]
