Mesmerizing you with its untouched, pristine beauty and magnificent charm of the various bounties of nature, Iruppu Falls, Coorg is an important sightseeing location for all visitors in the region. This picturesque waterfall is also considered as a sacred spot by locals and is visited by devotees all across the year. Also referred to as the Laxman Tirtha Falls, this amazing waterfall and its surrounding environs are best known for the origin of a tributary of the River Cauvery that flows onwards from here.
According to legendary tales, the birth of this river is attributed to Laxmana, the brother of Lord Rama, who pierced a hole in the mountains with his arrow and extracted the waters of this charming river. Here, you may also like to offer your reverence to Lord Rama, who resides in a small temple nearby.
