Places of interest

The Big Lake
The first thing one sees as you enter the yercaud town is this natural lake in a wonderful surrounding. It has a beautifully landscaped garden on the banks and boating facility.

Kiliyur Falls
This delightful water falls is 3km from the Yercaud lake. The surplus water from the Yercaud lake and the other reaches of the Shevaroy hills fall deep into the kiliyur valley. You can also trek to the bottom of the falls which is heavily wooded and takes about an hour from the lake.

Lady’s seat
There is a natural rock formation in the form of a seat where reportedly a white English lady of yesteryears spent her evenings viewing the magnificent panaroma before one’s eyes. There is a man made viewing tower with telescopes through which one can see the Mettur Dam on clear days. One should not miss the night view of the salem town with millions of lurking lights.

Pagoda Point
The name comes from the hill tribes having made four piles of random stones in a Pagoda or Pyramid formation reportedly to mark some event. There is a Rama Temple amidst the Pagodas.

Shevarayan Temple
This temple dedicated to lord shevarayan is a narrow and dark cave and seated inside are God Shevarayan and Goddess Kaveri. The annual festival in the month of may is a colorful event in which thousands of tribal people of the hill take part.
