At a distance of 13 km from Pechiparai Dam, 50 km from Kanyakumari, & 51 km from Trivandrum, Thirparappu Falls is an artificial waterfall situated at Thirparappu near Kanyakumari. It is one of the Kanyakumari tourist places.
The Kodayar River makes its descend at Thiruparappu and forms this wonderful waterfall. The river bed is rocky and about 300 feet in length. Descending from a height of about 50 feet, the spectacular falls mystifies the environment with its gushing waters. It is essentially a mix of multiple streams of water flowing from the top to form a majestic water pool at the bottom.
A swimming pool has been constructed for children over here and is a safe place for swimming. There are paddle boats available on rent for boating in the vicinity of the Falls. Mahadeva Temple dedicated to Siva enclosed by strong fortification is very close to the waterfalls and it's one of the important Siva temples in the Kanyakumari district.
