Belilena is a well known large cave in Sri Lanka located 8 km (5.0 mi) from the town of Kitulgala. This cave is located up a steep path on a hillside close to the town of Kithlgala, where from a nearby ledge, you may look down over a breathtaking vista of rubber plantation, jungle vegetation and hills.

Belilena Cave’s damp and dark depths are famed for the thousands of bats which have taken up residence in the cave’s cool interior, and they flit about seemingly haphazardly, in the discomforting beam of your torchlight. Colorful butterflies can be seen dancing around the entrance to the cave.

Evidence of prehistoric human presence as early as 32,000 years ago was recorded at the site and because of this, Belilena cave occupies a very special place in the cultural heritage of Sri Lanka and research by future generations of archaeologists with more advanced technologies and methods is expected to yield more knowledge.

As such, the site has been declared an Archaeological Reserve of the Archaeological Department under the Antiquities Ordinance.
However, the part of the cave beyond the lake that fills it a short way from its mouth still remains unexplored.
