Parotta stall in at Piranoor

Piranoor (Tamil:பிரானூர்) is a Panchayat Village of Tenkasi Block[1] and Shenkottai Taluk.[2] in Tirunelveli district, Tamil Nadu, India, in the foothills of the Western Ghats. Up to 1956, this area was a toll gate between the states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu, so this area is known as Border (பார்டர்).

It is located roughly 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) from the Courtallam Waterfall, near the border with Kerala. The Harihara and Kuntaaru rivers flow between Shenkottai and this village.

Economy[edit]

The major industry in this village is by log bucking at sawmills. This area is also famous for evening parotta stalls.
