It is nothing short of a local public bath. Too much crowd, too may shops thronging the place have completely devastated and shorn the spot of any touristy value. Please AVOID this terrible site to spare yourself the trouble of seeing fat pot bellied men, in the trunks, jostling in water or gulping down huge helping of rice on the... More

We enjoyed this place, Kids also enjoyed the place,Please be careful while entering the falls as most of the visitors leave small Soaps at the edge and this can be slippery. Overall a very good place to spend 2 hours its worth a visit

Waterfall has excellent view. there is also boating facilities. when you visit this place take the tickets of cost 50rs for boating too and take the self paddle boat and enjoy the boating in lake. After then enjoy the waterfall and bath underneath it. It will be memorable for life time.

Beautiful surroundings but not well maintained. When we visited it was over crowded and there was a lot of chaos. Visit only if you have free time.

This falls is not a natural falls but made from a diversion. People visiting this falls take a bath and make the whole place dirty. Stinking restrooms.

It could have been a nice place if people did not turn into a open bathroom. In Dec you cannot walk there without rubbing your body with someones bare and wet body. Yuke :-(

This was a great break from temple visiting on a very hot day. The grounds leading up to the falls are beautifully landscaped. Their is a nice children's playground. I stood under the falls and enjoyed the pounding, cool waters while holding onto the metal guard rail. The bathing is separated into men and women's section and there is a... More
