For outdoor travelers, the best places to relax are Lal Bagh and Cubbon Park. Although largely popular as the country's IT hub, the city is home to countless beautiful gardens, ancient temples, renowned national parks, and museums. This technically and the historically rich city has a great deal to offer to all tourists. There are countless options when it comes to sightseeing in Bangalore. Among others, Gavipuram Cave Temple, Bangalore ISKCON Temple, Sri Suryanarayana Swamy Temple, Sugreeva Venkateshwara Temple, and Venkataramanswamy Temple. In Bangalore, Venkataramanswamy Temple is one of the oldest places of religious importance, built in the late 1600s. This more than the 300-year-old temple, dedicated to Lord Venkataramana, displays intricate human and animal carvings that are splendid.
Courtallam, a town in the Tirunelveli District, is also known as South India's Spa. The name Courtallam is the Kuttralam Anglican version that the localities continue to use. It is nestled between scenic mountains and agricultural lands, situated along the Western Ghats. The place leaves an eternal impression on the visitors' minds. It is well known for its waterfalls, although there are many places to visit in and around the town. The best time to visit is from July to November, but during heavy rainfall, sometimes tourists can be restricted from entering the waterfall area. During the summer, some of the falls dry up and one can not enjoy the charm of the water cascades. For its nine waterfalls, Cortallam is renowned. It is also the place of origin for the river Chittar. On the whole, the small town is a good place for a weekend getaway and is about 585 km from Bengaluru. Not only in terms of culture, history, and heritage, it offers a diverse experience, but also in terms of nature and local natural Ayurvedic spa treatments.
The New Courtallam falls, also known in the local language as the 'Peraruvi,' cascades from an altitude of about 60 m. A crater where tourists and pilgrims can bathe has been formed by the rapid water flow. As its feeding streams and rivers pass through grooves of medicinal herbs, the waterfall is known to possess Ayurvedic healing properties.
In Trikoodamalai, a point in the Western Ghats where three mountains converge, the Peraruvi is located. Like the Chittar River, the falls flow further and join the Thamirabarani River before it merges into the Bay of Bengal.
In and around the waterfall area, many spas that offer Ayurvedic oil massages are located, attracting large crowds.
Things to do in Courtallam
Falls in Old Courtallam: In comparison to the New Courtallam falls, the Old Courtallam falls provide a much quieter experience as it attracts a smaller number of individuals. This allows people to take the time to enjoy and rejoice in the landscape.
The cascades have a natural, stair-stepping upper tier. The lower level is man-made and consists of an artificially modified swimming pool where people can swim. There are many rocks in the upper tier that curb the rapid flow of water.
Five Falls of Courtallam: One of the nine falls in the town of Courtallam is The Five Falls. All nine falls are collectively referred to as Courtallam falls, contributing to tourist confusion.
The falls get their name from the fact that in 5 roughly parallel segments, the water flows down. It is also comparable to the five-headed cobra referred to in Hindu mythology. The falls reach a point that makes up a single pool of water. The falls, during the tourist season, attracts thousands of people.
Falls in Shenbagadevi: The falls of Shenbagadevi can be reached from the main falls via a well-known trekking route. The falls are named after the fact that water flows through the Champak trees in the area known as Shenbaga in Tamil, as well as the temple of Shenbaga Devi in a nearby village. The source of these falls is the Thenaruvi, which flows as the Chitraru, and continues as the Shenbagadevi falls.
Thenaruvi (Falls of honey): An hour's trek from the waterfalls of Shenbagadevi leads to Thenaruvi or Honey Falls. It is named in such a way that many honeycombs can be seen along the rocks near the waterfalls. The water here is considered by localities to taste sweeter than the honey itself.
During the monsoon, it is impossible to reach anywhere near the waterfalls, but one can observe the enchanting view and listen to the thundering sound of the waterfalls hitting rocks below.
Time of season-the best time to visit
The season period is from June to September during the South West Monsoon rains. The water in the falls is good during this time and this is also the best time to take a bath in the falls. The breeze is very pleasant to the body and thrilling to the heart of the South West Monsoon. You can get multiple mountain fruits during this season and also the Special Chenbaga Flowers. From October to January, the North East monsoon season, the water will fall heavy and therefore it does not have a good time for waterfall bathing. The falls are sometimes flooded with water and tourists are prevented from bathing in the falls.
Rishi Agastya devoted himself to Lord Shiva here, according to folklore, and also received the darshan of the Lord along with his consort Parvati during his marriage at Kailasha. The ancient language of Tamil was also written by the Rishi here, which is why the people of Tirunelveli speak the purest form of it.
The Peraruvi or Main Falls are the largest of the largest falls, and one of the most visited. This waterfall is always full of water cascading down 60 meters from above. There is a temple bearing the inscriptions of Chola and Pandya. Many devotees come to the Courtallam Falls to offer their prayers to take a holy dip in its healing waters at the Papanasanathar Temple first throng. Even those visiting Sabarimala are making this fall a beeline.
