Tirawa basin is a large impact crater on Saturn's moon Rhea, at Coordinates: . It was glimpsed by Voyager 1 during its flyby of the moon and later photographed in greater detail by the Cassini orbiter.
Tirawa is 5 kilometers (3.1 mi) deep in places, as measured in NASA Voyager images, and is 360 kilometers (220 mi) across.
The crater has a slightly elliptic outline and an elongated central peak complex suggesting it was caused by an oblique impact. Tirawa overlaps Mamaldi, a larger and more degraded basin to its southwest.
