It is said that back in the year 1873, a famous monk by the name of Aluthgama Sangharatne came to Etanamadala and stayed in the jungles. He was dearly loved by the locals. His sermons were also deeply cherished by them. Therefore a prominent leader in the village by the name of Eliiyas Fernando built a hall so the monk could preach to the masses with ease. This hall which was called Dharma Salava was built using the generous donations of the locals.
