Nature's wonder and one must visit. Of course one should have luck in his favour to have a clear view of this pillar rock.

This is a very scenic place and almost all tourists visit this place. Since it was winters when we visited I could not get a nice photograph of Pillar Rocks

I wonder how they are formed by nature. Two giant pillars at the corner. If its surrounded by mist please dont leave soon.. the cold air gives way washing the mist away.

this is nice place to visit but only on clear day. Entry fee is only 2/-. Place for sight seeing is very less so in peak season it might be little cumbersome but view is very good.

It is a set of three giant rock pillars which stand very high. The place from where you have to them is very small, got crowded when i visited. You have to find place to click photos.

Nice view, will not recommend when there is fog!! cannot predict the climate in Kodai especially around the Tourist spots. better to spend some time in each location, fog may move quickly

Good for a look see, just a valley and some rocks if you like that kind of a view. On a clear day you can see the waterfall about a km away, a lateral view.

Must visit pillar rock, as the view is wonderful. On a cloudy day the ambiance is very romantic. Very nice place for photographers. There are quite a few shops around this area where you can buy chocolates and other local goods.
