There is a large stone well at the foot of the 44m Piyangiri Ella Fall , with evidence of a dam. According to folklore, the Piyangiri Ella Fall has a direct effect on the weather. Local villagers say that if the Diyavini Falls flows first, the rains will be delayed, resulting in a poor harvest and leaving people open to disease. If the Piyangiri Falls flows first however, bountiful harvests and good fortune would result. Stone gutters exist in the caves (Kattram). The villagers perform a ritual called ‘Kirimadu’ here to usher in good fortune. The fall is situated along the Alangoda – Weligapola road.

The waterfall lies close to the ancient Sri Devagiri Raja Maha Viharaya and the Diyavini Falls. It is said that there is a massive 128 feet long cave with drip ledges along the waterway between Piyangiri and Diyawini Falls somewhere high up on the mountains.
