According to the Saga of Christianity the formerly pagan chieftain Thorgeir threw the wooden images of the pagan gods into the Goğafoss waterfall after Christianity had been accepted in the Parliamentary Plains in the year 1000. The name of the waterfall, The Waterfall of the Gods, is derived from this event.
