The Buddha’s Final View of Adam’s Peak
The view of Adam’s Peak from the slopes below the Batatotalena, where the Buddha is said to have rested after his descent from the famous mountain. In the foreground is the Kuru Ganga Valley, with Adam’s Peak on the horizon to the east. In the middle ground, the flat-topped mountain is the Kunudiyaparvathaya.
