A cave or cavern is a natural formation in a mountainside or in the ground; Many caves can be found between the area from the Ritigala mountains in the North to the central hills and the southern hillocks of the South.

However, this impressive range of caves are located throughout the country; what I have listed under this category is non-monastic caves but popular for speleology in Sri Lanka. Some caves dating back approximately 500 million years and is attributed to the "Balangoda Man", who is claimed to be, a prehistoric man whose skeletal remains were uncovered inside these caves.
