Kaveri Falls. - Bar Chukki, general view.
Medium: Photographic print
This photograph of the Kaveri Falls, Mysore taken in the 1890s by an unknown photographer, is from the Curzon Collection's 'Souvenir of Mysore Album'. The branches of the stream which enclose the island of Sivasamudram form the picturesque falls of the Gagana Chukki ("Sky Spray") on the Mysore side, and of Bhar Chukki ("Heavy Spray") on the Coimbatore side, each of which makes a descent of about 300 ft in succession of beautiful rapids and broken cascades. The Bhar Chukki is on the eastern branch of the river.
