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.


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