In the 19th century, the Ganja Gate led to the city over this gorge and waterfall. The city gate received this name from the town of Ganja, the second most important city after Baku in Azerbaijan. Leather workshops located at this gate, in the waters of the waterfall, they tanned the leather. The entire stretch of the flow from the bathhouse to the Kura River was called Dabahanka. This name derived from the word that means to tan the hides.
