The Senanayake Aramaya is a temple situated on the Main Chilaw Road, at Madampe, Sri Lanka which houses The Sacred Hair Relics of Buddha.


This temple at Madampe was built by two aristocratic philanthropists Gate Mudaliar L. M. W. Senanayake and D. M. W. Senanayake (among their descendants are Dr Maiya Gunasekera and Mr Keerthi Senanayake). They built the Sambuddha Jayanthi stupa to commemorate the 2500th Buddha Jayanti. The relics of the Buddha and Arahant theras and from many parts of the world were brought to Senanayake Aramaya. The Buddha Jayanti stupa is manmade out of solid granite and took 10 years to complete.
