The mountain range takes it name from its similarity to a clenched fist. Known as Dumbara hills in folklore the Knuckles is traced in annals as the settlement of the pre-historic Yaksha tribe. The range is considered the richest watershed in Sri Lanka and once served as the source of pure drinking water for the Kandyan Royal Family based in the hill country capital city .
