Sri Lanka resumed day three on 151 for three, an overall lead of 365 runs against a South African side who have yet to score 150 in the series, and made a decision to allow Angelo Mathews to bat himself into form.
Sri Lanka lead the two-match series 1-0, having won the first test by 278 runs.
Earlier resuming the day on 277 for nine, Akila Dananjaya and Rangana Herath frustrated South Africa with a dogged 74-run stand for the final wicket before Maharaj struck when the latter was caught behind for 35.
Skipper Faf du Plessis top-scored for the tourists with a fluent 48, while Quinton de Kock contributed 32 as South Africa once again capitulated to the home side's slow bowlers and failed to reach the 150-mark in the series.
Sri Lanka spinner Dilruwan Perera.
South Africa gave another deplorable display of batting against spin when they were shot out for 124 by tea replying to Sri Lanka's first innings total of 338.
At the wickets were Dimuth Karunaratne on 59 not out and Angelo Mathews on 12 not out.
De Bruyn registered the first fifty by a South African in the series, which he eventually converted into his maiden Test hundred, and soon there was another as Bavuma followed suit. South Africa lost its last five wickets for 64 runs.
Dananjaya was left stranded on 43 not out, his career best score.
South Africa's batsmen showed greater application on Monday morning than throughout the series, with De Bruyn and Temba Bavuma in particular, playing the spinners particularly well.
