The Slab Inscription of Bathalagoda lies on the bunt of the Bathalagoda Reservoir in Ibbagamuwa.

The inscription has been made in the 13th century on the 5th year of the Queen Kalyaniwathi (1202-1208) of Polonnaruwa Kingdom. An Adhikari called Chudamani of Bandhalagoda region has repaired a breached sluice gate of the Batalagoda Reservoir and in addition built a second sluice. He has also renovated a nearby dilapidated and uninhabited temple of a pirivena (a learning center for bikkus) called Senevirath Pirivena built by a Lakvijaya Sansingu. He had also repaired the residential quarters of the bikkus, re established the pirivena and donated harvest from  four amunas from one of his paddy fields to the temple. The inscription also states that any person who defies these orders will be born as crows and dogs in their next lives.
