History of the location

Monrepo Guest House is situated in Gala junction on Kandy–Colombo road.

The Gala name linked up to ancient period where people used to travel by Bullock Carts and park at this junction for resting.

"Gala" in Sinhala language means "The resting place" for people who travel by bullock carts, where they release their animals from the carts and make them to rest over night. Then the people prepare their dinner with the available minimum facilities. Early morning next day they start their journey. This system is hardly used now days with the availability of modern transport system

"Gala junction" is the name location where today a Guest House has come up with modern facilities by the name, "MONREPO" (Monrepo is a French word meaning "My Leisure")
