Architecture

Maduwanwela Walawwa is a portrait of Kandyan architecture. The Mansion had been built under Maduwanwelas for centuries. After the constructions added by Maduwawela Maha Disawe, the black prince the total area of the residence was 20 acres. He made the number of rooms 121 and the number of middle yards 21. But today only 47 rooms and 7 middle yards are remaining.

the picture of the queen and valuable gold coins and gems been embossed on floor. But nowadays the gems and coins cannot be seen on the floor. Even though the tiles were lain in 1905, they are still in excellent condition.

Against the foreign rulers

He was a very short man of 4 feet 8 inches in height. Because of that, every door frame of the mansion was built just five feet tall. The only person who could go through the arches on horseback without hitting his head was Maduwanwela Disawa. Because of this reason, all the visitors including English rulers had to bow their heads to Maha Disawa before entering his residence. He didn’t even respect the queen of England. 
Broken pieces of tiles carrying the picture of the queen was fixed to the floor in order to get them stepped on by the visitors. British rulers were unable to stand against Maduwanwela Maha Disawa's behaviour.

The Garden

A stone gate frame can be seen at the entrance of the estate. As another fascinating feature of this estate the extensive gardens can be introduced. Three separate boundary walls segment the garden and Maduwanwela Disawa had constructed three stone arches.
