Bambarabotuwa Oya or Maha Gaga is the creator of this beautifully landscaped forest. It is not wise to behave unnecessarily near the waterfall and waterfall here. Because the depth of the pools here is unimaginable. And there is no place to go when the water level rises immediately. Also, a local said not to even think about going to the middle of the falls.
Several legends have been built up with this waterfall. In the past, it was a hiding place for the kings of Ravana and a small house with two peaks and a cave known as the Rawana Gap. In the past, a lower caste couple had lived in this place and a large number of people in the pit had killed the woman, and the husband who had tried to save his wife had also died. The people of the area are of the opinion that the people of the village at the bottom of the waterfall later killed and ate the ada meat and all those who ate the ada meat died of poisoning.
