I did not have much knowledge of this place and had in fact set out to visit Hanumangundi falls deep in the Kudremukh National park but owing to heavy rainfall , the falls were closed to visitors . Faced with this predicament, I decided to search for falls nearby and hence came across Sirimane falls and to tell the truth the fall did not disappoint me.

Legend speaks about a tale wherein a thousand years ago, the villagers who lived around the fall used to pray to the fall for trinkets and jewelry required for wedding events and other related rituals. The same used to be found lying near the fall miraculously but had to be returned once the ritual was completed. On one occasion a village person overcome by greed did not return the jewelry and from that day onwards the availability of further jewelry ceased for everyone and same continues till day.
