දොරවක ඇතුබැඳි ලෙන (Doravaka Ætubæn̆di Lena, Dorawaka Ethubandi Cave, A Door Hinged) is one of the several important archaeological caves of Sri Lanka. Mesolithic remains were excavated. On a wall inside the cave a commemorative plate informs that a lettering system was found at the cave, which was in use around 700 BC. The discovery of a linear diagram depicting two elephants and a reptile was first published in the Journal of Ceylon – Antiquarian Register in 1918.
