The Matale District is a land of many golden sources of Sri Lankan history, hidden in centuries of heritage. Surrounded by majestic mountain ranges that kiss the sky and nourish the country all year round, this beautiful area reveals to the world the many glories of the past that are still hidden today. Arangala mountain in the Naula Divisional Secretariat Division is another mountain range with a rough slope that is related to that historical background.
An isolated pillar-like structure can be seen at the top of Arangala Hill. Many legends associated with it still exist in the villages around Naula. Mysterious events and constructions as well as notes are unique to Arangala Rock.
Another important place to meet along the way while climbing Arangala Kanda are the ancient caves. Designed to accommodate a variety of occasions, these caves are completely natural locations. Above these caves is a pile of rocks that hold the reeds in place.
Visitors to the top of Arangala Kanda can easily see a 360 degree view. It was a truly amazing sight.
From the top of the rock you can see the Matale region, Kandy region, Wheelshire, Atipola and Brandigala rocks, Ambokka as well as the entire Knuckles region and Mount Rivaston.
