Jog Falls

Jog falls in Karnataka is arguably the tallest waterfall in India. Jog Falls is formed by the Sharavathi River, gushing down from a height of 253 meters. The river originates at Ambuthirtha in Thirthahalli taluk, flows north-west through the Western Ghats forming the Jog Falls before joining the Arabian Sea at Honavar. River Sharavathi splits up into four different tracks which are named in accordance with their perceived trajectories [3]. Going from left to right respectively in the picture, the names and the reasons for naming are:

Raja (King): Named so because of its apparently 'dignified' and 'serene' fall.
Roarer: This stream appears out of a mass of rocks, making a tremendous amount of noise.
Rocket: Consists of a large volume of water streaming out of a small opening at a very high speed.
Rani (Queen): also called Lady: The stream has a winding, twisting trajectory, said to resemble the movements of a female dancer.
