Ravana Ella Falls

Ravana Ella Falls in Sri Lanka
Ravana Ella Falls is a waterfall located in Ella in Badulla District, Sri lanka. The fall is about 25 m tall and formed by a tributary of Kirindi Oya.

This fall is called by the name of Ravana, a name of a mythical king found in the Indian Hindu epic Ramayanaya. According to the popular beliefs King Ravana had held Sita (Seetha) in captivity in this place. However, the authenticity of the Ramayanaya is controversial and hence it is today dismissed as a myth by Sri Lankan scholars (JRASSL, 2014)
