Photograph taken about 1900 by the Government photographer, Zacharias D'Cruz of a view of the water falls at Courtallam, part of the Curzon Collection.

It is one of 76 prints in an album entitled 'Album of South Indian Views'. This waterfall is situated in a very picturesque scenery in the Western Ghats and is said to have medicinal properties. The main cascade is formed by a three-stage drop 91 metres high. The site takes it names from the Kuttalanatha temple, a Shiva temple which attracts many pilgrims.
