Pillar Rocks, Kodaikanal Reviews

  • It is a set of three giant rock pillars which stand 400 ft high. There is an excellent public garden adjacent to the viewpoint. The pillars are famous for providing bird's view of nearby surroundings. The chambers between these two massive rocks are called the Devil's Kitchen. Best during clearing skies.

  • Its a lovely picnic spot. Constituting a beautiful mini garden; the place is named so as it has three vertically positioned boulders reaching up to a height of 400 feet. The aura here is full of affection and is evidence of a great love story. The view of rocks is not something to be missed. They stand as an untouched miracle for the tourists visiting Kodaikanal. The pillars are famous for providing bird's view of nearby surroundings. Its good to visit at earlier time whicj find rocks covered with mist and clouds, but when the ways become clear nothing beautiful than this could be ever seen.😍😍😍😘😘😘😘

  • Good place to visit especially early morning. Clean premises. View of the rocks and the valley beyond is simply great. Curio selling small shops are abundant. Snacks and drinks are also available. Altogether a refreshing experience. Only a very short drive from Kodaikanal lake.

  • Nice view point to see the pillar rocks and the other hills. Got little space to hangout. There is a small stream down the view point. Local vendors provide binocular views for Rs.40. Forest Sept charge some entry fee (I think Rs.10).

  • Superb viewpoint. It's great place to go and watch the view. But no point visiting here on a cloudy day as you would not see anything. Also the shops around this place are closed on Tuesday. So I would suggest that day for visit if possible to avoid the crowd
