Medawasala museum, which is located near the ancient royal court (Magul Maduwa) in the Dalada Maligawa complex, was opened for public exhibition in 2016. Being a subordinate building of the royal palace, the Medawasala is known as the residence of the queen consort of King Sri Wickrema Rajasinghe, the last king of Kandy. It is a notable edifice in the Dalada Maligawa complexas well as in the world heritage city of Kandy.

Architectural features typical of traditional noble houses in the later Kandyan period, i.e., meda midula (center court), mahamaduwa, varendah with colonnade, inner chamber, wooden doors and windows, wooden pillars, and paintings are remarkably preserved at the Medawasala.
