Chadwick is a Sanskrit name which is a combination of two words. The “Chidku Jharr. The first word Chidku means the sparrow and the “Jhaar” means the waterfalls. According to the local people, it was believed that only the sparrows were capable of reaching the top of the falls and not any other creature. Hence it was named the Chidku Jharr. But during the British rule, they were finding it very hard to pronounce the name Chidku Jharr and hence they began to call the waterfalls as Chadwick. Since then it has become the Chadwick waterfalls. There is another story for the name, according to some there was a scientist by name Chadwick, he had committed suicide at the falls, and therefore, it is named after him. No matter how the name of the falls originated but one thing is clear it is indeed a beautiful location to visit in Shimla and just a short distance from the city of Shimla.
