Plate 3 from the fourth set of Thomas and William Daniell's 'Oriental Scenery,' which they called 'Twenty-four Landscapes.' The views progress northwards from the far south at Cape Comorin to Srinagar in Garhwal in the Himalaya mountains. The site of Kuttalam takes its name from the Kuttalanatha shrine, a small temple when the Daniells visited it, which has become a site overcrowded with pilgrims and visitors. The natural setting of this cascade, falling on the shiny rocks, represented a very captivating and picturesque site for the artists.
