Mysore To Ooty Packages
Ooty Tour Packages From Mysore
The hills of the Nilgiris were nev-er under dynastic rule. They re-mained in calm isolation behind the curtain of blue that enve-
lopes the Nilgiris and gives them their name, the Blue Mountains, while, at their feet, battles raged between great dynasties. History, however, records that the Gangas (mid-10th century), Hoysalas (11th century A.D.), the kings of Mysore (1610 -1792 A.D.) and the ruling family of Kottayam laid claim to this tract in their time. In fact, the British settled a claim by the ruler of Kottayam by presenting him with a handsome pension when they acquired Ooty for themselves.
