Appallagoda Ambalama was built in 1922 when Sri Lanka was still under British rule. The villagers say that the structure was built in order to house travelling trade parties, which were apparently abundant in this era. Although there is no written documentation about this Ambalama (maybe because it is a fairly recent addition to the list of Ambalamas in Sri Lanka) the village folk say that the Ambalama was built under the orders of the "Arachchi" (head of the village), with the help of the villagers themselves. An folktale revolves around the four names engraved in the four internal stone columns. It is said that these four names belonged to some "thugs" who were from the southern part of the island, who had come to Kandy with commercial interests and settled down there. They had used their powers and engraved their names in the Ambalama. Thus, those names of times by gone still remain unhampered by the winds of change.
