about velliangiri hills

Located on the Western Ghats, the hills are a part of the famous Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve, the Velliangiri Hills are considered as the Kailash of the South. The hills are a popular pilgrimage spot as well. Dedicated to Swayambu, which is a form of Lord Shiva, the temple on Velliangiri Hills is a preferred meditation spot for sages, siddhas and siddhar. Legend has it  that this is temple was where the Lord himself performed cosmic dance which was requested by Uma devi, his consort. Of all the festivals, Maha Shivratri is celebrated with much ardour and faith here. The lush hills are a trekker's paradise as they are located at an altitude of 2438 meters, so do carry your walking shoes when you make your way to this picturesque landscape.
