It is a small town in the Tirunelveli District of the Western Ghats. The Hillocks, named after the Tamil saint who is believed to have lived here, vanish into the blue mist of Agasthiar Malai. The title Spa of South India was won by numerous waterfalls, cascades, countless health resorts in the Courtallam.
This waterfall region, like the Chittar River, Manimutharu, Pachaiyar and Tamirabarani, is the source of perennial rivers. In June, the season begins and lasts until September. It is when heavy rainfall is experienced in the region and it is a pleasure to see and enjoy. There are a few important and closest towns in Courtallam, Senkottai and Tenkasi. The nearest airport is 90 km from Thuthukudi and the nearest railway junction is Tenkasi, just 5 km from this town.
The Temple of Thiru Kutrala Nathar is the oldest and one of the Pandya Kingdom's 14 Sivasthalams. This is one of the five abodes, or Natya Sabhas, where his divine celestial dance was performed by Lord Siva. Since Lord Natarajar is referred to as Chitra Sabha in the form of Chithram or Mural. A little away from the main temple of Kutralanathar is a hall called Chitra Sabha. In addition to these portraits, around the walls of the entire temple, you can find a lot of portraits of different Hindu Gods and Goddesses. In the form of mural paintings in this temple, you can also find different mythological storeys and scenes from epics.
Courtallam 's Water Falls : The prominent falls of the 60 ft Peraruvi (Main Falls) have a deep crater at Pongumakadal that regulates the water rush. Chitraruvi(Small Falls) prominently attracts tourists with a thin flow of water. From here, tourists can enter Shenbagadevi, Tehnaruvi and the Herbal Farm by hiking. Shenbaga devi Falls rushes through the trees of Shenbagam[michaelia Champak] and there is the temple of the temple of Shenbaga Devi Amman. Since it is full of honeycombs where there is no water, Thenaruvi (Honey Falls) is therefore named by this name. It is 3 km from Shenbagadevi, where a waterfall falls between two large rocks. Aintharuvi (Five Falls) is named after five separate cascades of rushing water. Bathing in it will be on every tourist 's agenda. This name is given to Pazhathotta Aruvi as water flows down from underneath the Orchard. Puli Aruvi (Tiger Falls) is an artificial waterfall, and the water is collected and used for irrigation from here in a lake. It is named by this name because tigers are sighted here some time. Palaruvi, Pazhaya Courtallam(old Falls), are the falls found in the region of Courtallam.
Main Falls: This is a magnificent waterfall that is 60 metres high. As the name suggests, the most famous and frequented waterfall in Courtallam is Main Falls. The water flow is blocked by a crater known as Pongumakadal, reducing its speed and impact. This decreased pace makes bathing safe here, although bathing is banned due to safety problems during heavy floods.
There are different sections for bathing for men and women. At a nominal rent, changing rooms are open. You can visit the waterfall in the evening or at night, if you want to avoid heavy crowds.
Small Falls: Another waterfall in the main town is Small Falls. Situated right next to each other, it is a pair of small falls. The two falls were divided by two open rooms with high walls; one portion is reserved for women and another for men, so it feels more like an indoor waterfall. After Main Falls, a long, sloping path leads to Small Falls. Thanks to its low height, Small Falls is a healthy place to bathe for young children and the elderly.
Five Falls: Five Falls is 4 km away from the main town, and after Main Falls, it is the second most crowded location. Witnessing five waterfalls in one location is unusual. For women, two falls are reserved for bathing and three are allocated for men. There are change-room facilities available.
Outside the falls there are several vendors selling fruits. The local snacks are guava, blackberry, mangosteen and mangoes. Everywhere in Courtallam, monkeys are a huge problem as they steal food away in a jiffy from visitors.
Tiger Falls :In the suburbs of Courtallam, Tiger Falls is an artificial waterfall created on the river. It has a modest flow and it's low in height. For children and the elderly, this makes it healthy. In ancient days, tigers used to visit this channel, drinking water from the river.
Another draw for children and adults where one can bathe or swim is the stream in front of the falls. Tiger Falls is unique and well worth a visit.
Courtallam tourist places
Old Courtallam: Old Courtallam is situated 7 km away from the main town. One takes a scenic path to these secluded falls. Compared to Main Falls or Five Falls, the flow is less, but whether the flow is down to trickles, bathing is always fun. In contrast with other falls, Old Courtallam is also less crowded.The Old Courtallam hill is barren and devoid of greenery, but this area has a rustic charm that makes it distinctive.
Shenbaga Devi Falls: A trek above the Main Falls takes you to Devi Falls and Honey Falls in Shenbaga. During the trek, Shenbaga Devi is the first waterfall to welcome you. When the flow is moderate, it is safe for bathing. In parts of the water, one can take a bath.The trek is strenuous, and ample water and food must be brought. Beyond Shenbaga Devi Falls, the elderly and people with health problems should not venture.
Honey Falls: It takes a strenuous trek of about two hours to get to Honey Falls. A waterfall with a height of 200 feet is a plunge. It is best not to bathe in this waterfall, but in front of the waterfall, one can swim in the lake.With abundant greenery and a gentle stream all along the way, the trek is a visual delight. One needs to navigate a few boulders blocking the route, so this trek guarantees good physical exercise. The trek is made more fun by such obstacles.
Park for Children: There's a Children's Park near Main Falls. The park has a large children's play zone. At one end of the park, there is a small hillock where people sit and talk during the evening hours in groups. The old movie hall on top, unfortunately, is no longer active.
Boathouse: There is a lake with a boathouse near Five Falls. This is a new attraction that has recently been added. This is part of the efforts made to expand Courtallam 's attractiveness, otherwise known for its waterfalls and its good weather.
