OOTY / UDHAGAI / UDHAGAMANDALAM / OOTACAMUND

 

Udhagamandalam,   which   is   the   Head Quarters  of    the  district,  is  the  largest  and  most   important hill station in south  India.   This  principle  station  on  the  Nilgiris  is  at  an  elevation of  2286  meters  and  situated  at  the center  of  the  district.  It  is  an  extensive  valley  enclosed on  all  sides  but  the  west  by  a  lofty  range  of  hills.  The  name of the ooty or Ootacamand was first mentioned in about 1821  in  the  Madras  Gazette  which  was  then spelt as "Wotokymund" by  an   anonymous    correspondent   who   was   one   among  the  Europeans  to  set  an  eye  on  Ootacamand.  It is also fondly called the Queen of Hill Stations.
