Nice place to chill out, some times it is crowded other wise a beautiful place, Nice place to take children for a day out, lot of place areas and activities, after renovation looks much better, still the place can be kept clean, avoid plastic and bottles.

It is a well maintained small water fall with a manicured garden where you can have a refreshing bath. There is an ancient Siva temple just by the side of the falls. Was surprised to see stone craft around the temple ground of a snake chasing a frog

It was more of a glorified shower than a waterfall. The boat ride was pretty good compared to the falls.

It is not a great waterfall. Entrance is Rs 5 per head. Not recommended. Most visitors are bathing under the waterfall. Separate areas for men and women.

I've been here plenty of times and it always rejuvenates me. Not so crowded and you can get a good place with high -pressured water. Changing rooms available for a small price. Can go on top of the falls. There's a temple and boating available. I've just been there once...
