Bathalegala from Alagalla


This photo was taken on the way to Alagalla. The prominent book shaped rock in the middle is known as Bible Rock and the local name is Bathalegala. The same rock could be seen clearly as you go through Balana Pass on the way from Colombo to Kandy.

I love to visit you in one day.

Harumi said...

Beautiful scenery! Wonder why all these rock names are inspired by potato names, like Chavie points out. =D

You should be there with Sinhalaya Travels when they do their next journey :)

Betsy,
Thanks! The baby is fine but she is giving us sleepless nights :)

Loshini,
Yes low clouds, are beautiful when they hover on top mountains.

Rainfield,
You are most welcome brother!

Harumi,
No idea and neither of them look like potatoes or sweet potatoes. :)

Nicole,
Time you have a short vacation somewhere in a jungle hide-out to have an eyeful of greenery :)

Betchai,
Thanks a lot for the comments!

Anjana,
Yep, I too can't think of any other potato rock right now. When are you planning to visit here next?
