Recently walked to the Courtallam Main Falls, which is famously called the Courtallam Peraruvi waterfalls. It is the one of the most prominent and largest waterfalls out of the nine falls in Courtallam. The Pongumakadal stone blocks the flow of its water current and slowly comes down to make it a safe place to bathe for families. The Peraruvi water stream, located in the middle of the Courtallam town, is also a place of worship for local people. The water here is believed to have great medical value as they run through a forest of herbs. There is separate bathing area for both men and women. Bathing at the Peraruvi waterfalls rejuvenated our mind and body, as Courtallam is popularly known as the India’s Spa. Near to this waterfalls, the temple of Thirukootachalanathar, dedicated to Sri Thirukutralanathar – Lord Shiva and Kuzhalvaimozhi Amman is located. Inside the rocks are sculpted so many lingams and images of gods over which water flows, rendering it a divine fall.
The Small falls or the Chitraruvi are just above the falls. There are steps to make the small falls easy to access. The scale of the falls is relatively small and Peraruvi-fearing people can literally enjoy Chitraruvi. The Chitraruvi waterfalls leads to other waterfalls like Shenbagadevi falls and Thenaruvi.
