People who pay a visit to Coimbatore must make it a point to visit the Vydehi waterfalls situated some 35 km away from the Coimbatore city. This Waterfall is named after the evergreen Tamil movie 'Vaidehi Kathirunthal'
It is one of the most popular tourist attractions around Coimbatore, especially for trekkers. Visitors enjoy sliding into the pool of water here. The place is also famous for smooth sloppy rocks which also provide beautiful sight of serene mountain ranges. The forest is home to many medicinal plants and herbs. There are some wild animals in the vicinity, so it’s important to be vigilant. The falls have a massive roar that pierces the stillness of the forests. The forest department maintains strict security around the area. World standards, extraordinary architecture, innovative layouts, and well-thought execution make the place a highly coveted point of tourist interest. For a refreshing dose of splendid natural beauty, a visit to Vaidehi Falls at Narasipuram on the outskirts of Coimbatore is recommended.
Vydehi waterfall used to be called "Tholayira Murthi Kandi", in Tamil Tholayiram stands for the number nine hundred, word Murthy has several interpretations, one is The Lord, another means Manifestation, Kandi is the word for water fall.
