Verla's rock painting is a rock painting in Kouvola in the area of the former municipality of Valkeala, near the culturally and historically significant Verla ironworks village. The painting was made on the neck of the Verlankoski rapids, along the mäntyharju route of the current Kymijoki river, from where the ancient so-called Matkuslampi riverbed of Saimaa also ran into the Kymijoki river. The rock painting is Stone Age, but there is no more precise time determination. In the painting, among other things, a queue of moose looking to the left, that is, to the north, stands out, as well as some human figures.
