Origin of Seetha Gangula
Seetha Gangula (cold stream) is a popular stream found on the way to Sri Pada. It is customary for the devotees to have a bath from this cool spring water before the climb. As the name implies, the water is very cold at these heights.
Seetha Gangula is a collection of water streams start from Sri pada and surrounding mountains. One branch joins Kuru Ganga and ends up in River Kalu and the other set of branches join Maskeli Oya via Maskelioya Reservoir and link with River Kelani.
This picture was taken from the top of Siri Pada. It shows one of the starting points of Seetha Gangula and small yet tall waterfall created from the same stream.
