Courtallam Info

  • State: Tamil Nadu
  • Famous for/as: Waterfront
Courtallam is a small township located in the district of Tirunelveli in Tamil Nadu. Situated at an altitude of 167 metres on the Western Ghats, Courtallam is the anglicised version of Kuttralam.

Known as 'Spa of the South', the township is famous for its cascading waterfalls and ancient temples. The location features as many as seven waterfalls, which originate from the Chittar River. The town is also referred to as Mukthiveli, Nannagaram, Pithur Kanda, Theerthapuram, Thirunagaram and Vasanthaperur.
Like many other Indian towns and cities, the township of Courtallam is also linked with mythological stories. According to legend, Lord Shiva commissioned saint Agastya to avoid imbalance due to the growing huddle in the Great Kailash on his celestial wedding.

The inscriptions in the temples of Courtallam depict the feature of Chola and Pandya kings. According to local beliefs, the Sabha is one of the five Sabhas where Lord Nataraja had performed his trademark cosmic dance.

Since the town is known for its waterfalls, tourists can head to the nearest fall to enjoy themselves. There is not much to shop in Courtallam other than local produce and souvenirs sold at local roadside shops. Tenkasi is a small town located nearby and it has a number of small restaurants that serve traditional South Indian fare.
Tourists can also arrive at Tenkasi Railway Station to enter the town, 6 km away from the destination. The nearest airport to Courtallam is the Tuticorin Airport (TCR), which is located at a distance of 86 km. Travellers can also drive down to the town from Tirunelveli.
The best time to visit Courtallam is between June and September. Courtallam enjoys pleasant climate throughout the year.
