About 1.5 km downstream from the glenrock, Pahanthudawa Falls, translating to 'Flame of the Lamp' Falls cleverly named for the shape of it. It probably is the most unique waterfall in Sri Lanka for its remarkable geographical setting with towering walls of stone on either side, created through hundreds of thousands of gallons of waters of Belihuloya cascading down from the Horton Plains on its way to the Indian Ocean.

Legend has it that a fleeing king (King Mayadunne) found refuge in the village (where the glenrock sits) five centuries ago. Here he built a temple inside a cave decorating it with frescos and statues of Lord Buddha along with other deities.
