When the stream is at full bore, the sound of the water plunging over the falls is deafening, but the concrete walkways don't add much to the atmosphere. According to locals, the name is a corruption of David's Falls, a reference to a Swiss visitor who tumbled into the sinkhole and drowned, taking his girlfriend with him!

The Tibetan people living in these villages keep themselves busy by producing and trading in woolen carpets and other handicraft items. They also run souvenir shops around lakeside. Some of them work like hawkers selling souvenirs at bargaining prices.
Bindhabasini Temple: This temple is one of the most revered temples of the Pokhara where hundreds of Hindu devotees flock every morning worship the goddess Bindhabasini after whom the temple is named. A stone idol of goddess Bindhabasini is placed here which has seen artistically carved into the unique shape of goddess Bindhabasini. As legend toes King Khadga Bam Malla, Kihng of ganga in Kathmandu was a veritable devotee of goddess Bindhabasini. One night goddess Bindhabasini did appear in his dream and order him to bring her idol from Bindhyachal Pradesh, India and place her in Nepal. Porter carry her idol from India and rest overnight at that place; next morning the porters got up and tried to lift the idol of Bindhyabasini to their surprise they could not even move the idol an inch. With great amazement the porters ran to the King and described the whole story, but they became even more surprised when they found their King did not show any sign of astonishment. Later on, the king told them about the wish of the goddess and that she wanted to stay there permanently. The whole story was later written in a Bhoj Patra during the reign of King Bhirkote.
