How I went:

Courtallam is very famous for it water falls with medicinal properties. The time to visit is generally between June 15th to Aug 15th . After the monsoon is over the water falls dries out. There is a train which runs from Madras Egmore (station Code MS) to Tenkasi just 6 km away from Courtallam on Monday,Wednesday and Saturday. TSI is the station code. On other days it is best to come to tirunelveli (Station code TEN) and take a bus to courtallam which is about 1 ½ hrs from here.

I had reached here from Papanasam on 1st night at 9 pm. Put up at Shivanarayana lodge Rs.250 or Rs.300 Ph:9443417005(Mr.Arunacalam). Other lodges like kurinji etc were full due to season time. Kurinji hotel and lodge(more famous for quite some time) phone no is-04633- 283236, 283267( double room Rs.195, delux double 250 and ac 450( there is off season discount too).then there is dalvoy house where u can stay-04633-283027,283447
I mostly come to the water falls at Courtallam between 10th Aug to 24th Aug since I can have a bath freely. Otherwise between June and Aug the crowd is real heavy. I also make it a point to hit the water falls( mainfalls very near hotel..other falls are 5 falls abt 4km away, old falls 8 km away, tiger falls 3 km away,citraruvi 1km away, shenbagadevi falls 5 km away)) late in the night by 11pm when you can have a good bath. Leave all your things in room, keep money tightly packed inside two or three plastic covers in the shorts you are wearing to the water falls..you can have a good oil massage on the way..i had a full body ayurvedic massage at Rs.250. Is is enough if u have have a massage for rs 50 which includes rs 20 oil bottle) Bathed till 2 am. The best thing is people stay here for 1 week , keep having massage and go to falls and bathe..the water pouring from such great hiegt again massages the body and all the oil dissappears ..then they go back have food rest for a while and then again have oil massage and bathe have food..this cycle goes on..till today no one catches cold etc here) Then came back and slep in the room. At 6 am I got up and visited Kutralanather Temple did archanai et all. There are two ambals(lady godesses here)
There is view point of the falls at the backside of the temple. There is also agastiyar’s statue there. I had a peculiar vision of him. The experience was something I would cherish. I saw a green radium kind of glow around him in the form of aura.

How I went:

From Courtalam I took an Auto for Rs 50 to drop me at the temple at 8 am. You can also take the very many busses that ply the route. This is supposed to be the kasi temple of the south. Did my archanai etc and left for tirunelveli from where I had booked my ticket in Nellai express back to Chennai.
