Photograph of Tatrahi Falls, and a gap in the rocky scarp at Tilothu in the Shahabad District of Bihar, taken by Joseph David Beglar in the 1870s. The List of Ancient Monuments in Bengal (1896) states "These waterfalls occur at a gap in the rocky scarp to the south of Rohtas. They are a place of pilgrimage...In the hollow of the hills, near Tilothu, is a holy place, sacred to the goddess Sitala. The water falls from a perpendicular height of about 180 feet, over a gap in the rock, about 30 feet wide, into a deep pool. There is a nude female figure carved on the rock; it appears to be inscribed. there is also a carved and inscribed slab, dated 1158, representing the buffalo-killing goddess."
