There is a legend associated to the waterfall, according to which, this place was one of the favorite places of a beautiful princess. After her bath, she would often drink sweetened milk from a jug made of gold. Once, while doing the same, she saw a handsome prince who was looking at her while she was drinking her milk. To hide her modesty, she poured the milk from her jug, forming a white curtain in front of her. As per the legend, the sugared milk that the princess poured down still flows down the mountains in honour of her virtues.
