The Batatotalena Cave, also known as the Diva Guhava in Buddhist literature, is a cave system in Sudagala, 8 km (5 mi) away from the town of Kuruwita, in the Sabaragamuwa Province of Sri Lanka.

The cave measures approximately 15 m  high, 18 m  wide, and 25 m  in length, totalling the internal cave area to 6,800 m3 . Accessing the cave involves a 400 m  hike from Sudagala, and an additional 50 m  climb to reach the cave entrance. Approximately 30 m  from the cave is another partially submerged cave, which is accessible after a 20 m (66 ft) swim.  

In Buddhism, it is believed to be the cave in which the Lord Buddha spent the day after placing his footprint on Adam's Peak, from where he supposedly proceeded to Dighavapi.
