Pahiyangala – 45 minutes drive

Pahiyangala Where the pre-historic man lived 37,000 years ago.Valuable fossils of the pre-historic man have been found in this pit.

A large rocky mountain loomed before us through the misty morning, when we were proceeding towards the village “Yatagampitiya” 5 km off Bulathsinhala in the Kalutara district, where an early human habitation existed thousands of years ago, today known as “Pahiyangala”.

Indeed, it is a wonderful creation of nature and we had to climb up a long flight of stone steps to reach the main cave, which formed like a cobra’s head naturally. Certainly, you will hold back your breath for a few seconds seeing the hugeness of this cave, measuring, 200ft in length and 150ft in height, supposed to be the largest rock cave in Sri Lanka and 3000 people could be sheltered in it very easily.

The cave has been divided into four sections of which the left side cave is the largest and is the centre of it. There is a deep pit dug out by the Archaeological Department for an excavation. Buried in this pit, fire human skulls have been recovered by the archaeologists headed by Dr. Shiran Deraniyagala, Commissioner of Archaeology and his assistant W. Wijeyapala.
