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.

Travelling with Sri Lanka Railway's Main Line (Sri Lanka) from Colombo to Kandy you can see it.
