Pillar Rocks, Kodaikanal

3.7
Jutting out from the surrounding forest, Pillar Rocks create an imposing natural focal point amid an already dramatic landscape. The three giant rock pillars, around 122 m (400 ft) in height, rise out of a thick surrounding forest. The main viewpoint from which to see the rocks can get pretty busy, but definitely wait your turn to see them unobstructed. At such a great height, clouds regularly cover the pillars, but when they break through, the effect is all the more memorable. Plan your Pillar Rocks visit and explore what else you can see and do in Kodaikanal using our Kodaikanal vacation planner.

  • There is absolutely nothing to view here. They don't even look like pillars. Skip this in the interest of other better places around.  more »
  • Since we had taken the half day tour, the pillar rocks were included. Very crowded. When we reached there we didn't get to see much as it was foggy and misty but it slowly cleared up to see the pillar...  more »

  • Amazing View Of the surrounding Hills. There is a viewing dock entry fee is 5 rs per person. There is lot of small shops nearby. There is no proper parking space you have to park by the road. There is 2 Bench to sit inside the viewing area also some enjoyment for small kids
  • Very good place. This place is located little far from kodaikanal lake. Lot of shops near pillar rocks. The pillar rock is nothing but two identical rocks looking like twins. Mostly in winter frequently it will be covered by mist. Place is good for taking photographs
