Bible Rock

Bible Rock (Batalegala in Sinhala language) is a mountain near Aranayake in Kegalle District in central Sri Lanka. It is known as the "Bible Rock" as its surface resembles a book/bible. Due to its prominent flat top surface, it resembles the more famous Sigiriya citadel located more north of it. From the Mawanella town, you can take a bus to Debathgama and get to the Bathalegala Temple. From there, you can walk 3.5 km to the top of the mountain.
