The Lost Legacy of the Nilgiris Volume 1

Author Name: Indrani Radhakrishnan | Format: Hardcover | Genre : Travel | Other Details
Amazon Sales Rank: Ranked #57 in Ecotourism

The book has a background of more than 10 years of research. Nilgiris has a rich history and heritage as it was the summer capital of the Madras Presidency. Many of the annual tourism events, held in the district headquarters of Ootacamund or better known as Ooty, are still the remnants of the British colonisation. The idea occurred when the author found many attractive old British buildings and became interested in their history. Soon she realized that many little details are not included in history books, and therefore she decided to pen down all her investigations for the Nilgiris people. Nilgiris is in a way lucky to have been the summer capital, here the level of the English language is good, buildings have stood the test of time and people have adapted to many changes. It is sincerely hoped that this book will enhance people’s knowledge and improve their awareness of the rich local history and heritage to preserve them. As it is a favourite haunt of tourists, it also has a splash of tourism-related information. Therefore, this book will be cherished and preserved by anyone who loves the Nilgiris, which was once known as the Nila mountain where Goddess Nila Devi was presumed to have lived.
