The falls are named after the legendary King of Lanka, known from Hindu mythology and the Indian Ramayana epic. Ravana kidnapped Rama’s wife Sita. Local legend has it that he had hidden her in the caves behind this waterfall and sometimes bathed in the pool. Nothing like this is mentioned in the Indian scriptures.
