Abbey Waterfalls – Also known as Jessey Waterfall

Abbey Falls in Madikeri, Karnataka, India

History of Abbey Waterfalls

The Madikeri stream also called Muttramuttu, falls 21.3 meter between huge boulders to a deep rocky valley to form this picturesque Waterfall called Abbi falls (abbi means waterfalls in Kodavatak). The British called it the Jessey waterfall in memory of Jessey, the daughter of Madikeri’s first chaplain. Every year a few unwary people meet an unfortunate end over the slippery rocks here.
