This is close to the water pool on the opposite side of the Dalada Maligawa and is visible as an open greenery of square shape that runs forth towards D.S. Senanayake Veediya. It is an esplanade, known as a place of gathering when the king arrives at the Pathirippuwa and also where high officials and bhikkus gather to witness the Perahera and host other functions and even used as a place of worship where offerings towards the tooth relic were made.
In 1828 during the British rule, the country was at a diverged stage due to the non-holding of the perahera for a period of ten years. The British Governors then decided as a way of listening to appeals of the Kandyan high officials and Mahasangaratnes, brought forth the Dalada Wahansa  and also a pavilion for the Maha Sangayawahansa was built (of an extent of 229 ft in length and 60 ft in width) as noted in historical records.

At present the Mahamaluwa is considered to be a most peaceful place ideally suited for devotees on pilgrimage offering homage and visiting the Dalada Palace. But it is also known as a monument where the skull of Weerakeppitipola Nilame is deposited and the a statues of Weera Maduma Bandara together with statues of Prince Danuthe and Princess Hemamala, which was built by President R Premadasa.
