Pillar Rocks, Kodaikanal

#4 of 45 in Things to do in Kodaikanal
Lookout · Tourist Spot
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.

  • This place is good only if it’s bright and sunny, otherwise you won’t get to see the valley of the rocks. So plan your trip accordingly!  more »
  • Beautiful place to visit in the day time. There is basically one pillar kind rock which is clad in clouds and mist throughout the day. Photography is good here.  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
