Information about Jog falls – Travel Guide


Shar-Avanti = Shar = Arrow, As per Purana, During Exile. Ram and Sita visited this place. When Sita was thirsty, so Lord Ram shot an arrow and drew water from the ground. As a result the continuous water flow becomes River. So Later this river is named Sharavati. Jog fall is a part of the Sharavati river. This is the biggest waterfall not only in Karnataka but also ranks in the top five waterfalls in India.

Sharavanti = Shar = बाण, पुराणानुसार, वनवासात. राम आणि सीता यांनी या ठिकाणी भेट दिली. सीतेला जेव्हा तहान लागली तेव्हा रामाने बाण मारून जमिनीतून पाणी काढले. परिणामी सतत पाण्याचा प्रवाह नदी बनतो. त्यामुळे पुढे या नदीचे नाव शरावती पडले. जॉग फॉल हा शरावती नदीचा एक भाग आहे. हा फक्त कर्नाटकातीलच नव्हे तर भारतातील पहिल्या पाच धबधब्यांमध्ये सर्वात मोठा धबधबा आहे.


Sharavati is the biggest River in Karnataka, which falls from almost 500 ft high. Many flows came together and become the biggest waterfall. We saw there are four main falls available. All of these are look like King and Queen flowing together, there after one fall was flowing faster like a rocket and the other was flowing through stones so its noise was heard like a lion Roar in forests.

शरावती ही कर्नाटकातील सर्वात मोठी नदी आहे, जी जवळजवळ 500 फूट उंचीवरून खाली येते. अनेक प्रवाह एकत्र आले आणि सर्वात मोठा धबधबा बनला. आम्ही चार मुख्य फॉल्स उपलब्ध असल्याचे पाहिले. हे सर्व राजा आणि राणी एकत्र वाहत असल्यासारखे दिसत आहेत, एक पडल्यानंतर रॉकेटप्रमाणे वेगाने वाहत होता आणि दुसरा दगडांमधून वाहत होता त्यामुळे त्याचा आवाज जंगलात सिंह गर्जनासारखा ऐकू येत होता.
