Gautamdhara, the name it derives because of it from being kissed with heavenly grace. History speaks tales of Lord Buddha bathing here. The sons of Raja Baldevdas Birla built a temple and ashram dedicated to Buddha atop the Gautam Pahar. The ashram was originally associated with Hindu devotees as well as all branches of Arya dharm (Buddhists, Jains, Sikhs, Sanatani, Aryasamajis), as per proclaimed by a sign here.
Due to its aesthetic beauty it has become a tourist destination for many ardent explorers. The Jharkhand Tourism has lend a helping hand and has created some tourist rest places and constructed somewhat 500 steps leading to the bottom of the fall. Due to absence of deep pool plunge beneath the waterfall, it is one of the safest waterfalls in Ranchi. One can even bathe just beneath the water fall as the bottom is filled with sand making it even safer.
A lot of geographical as well as religious explanations of the fall are propagated but after visually devouring it feels like only poetry can do justice to its description. Or maybe it itself is a poetry by the nature’s Bard.
