Tourist attractions at Jog Falls Karnataka.

Jog Falls Karnataka is one of the top five reasons for a flourishing tourism industry in Karnataka. This spectacular waterfall is a segmented waterfall with four branching falls: the Raja (meaning King, as it has a royal dignity), the Roarer (named so due to the maximum noise it creates as it cascades down), the Rocket (it plunges down at great speed from a small opening), and the Rani (meaning Queen or lady, due to its graceful form akin to a female dancer). Also known as Gersoppa Falls and Jogada Gundi, the four segments that make up the Jog Falls Karntaka have been created by the Sharavathi River.
