Jodu Ella Falls (Sinhala: ජෝඩු ඇල්ල) is a waterfall located in Panwila Divisional Secretariat in Kandy District, Sri Lanka. It cascades as two separate falls and is created by a tributary of the Hulu Ganga River. In the Sinhala language, the "Jodu" means "couple".

Many have mistakenly identified Jodu Ella Falls as the waterfall that is depicted on Sri Lanka's 100  rupee note. However, it doesn't depict Jodu Ella Falls but the Laxapana Waterfall with the cables that transmit the hydro-power generated by it.

The fall can be reached after a small hike from the road. At the bottom of the fall is a small natural pool unsuitable for bathing.
