Servarayan hill

valley view
(click pictures for enlarge)
The Servarayan hill’s of yercaud is a feel so good place that lifts spirit in the air! The cool breezy atmosphere attracts many visitors to this peak – the highest elevation of the yercaud, which welcomes throughout the year for a quite relaxing vacation. The spacious servoroyan hill has a pleasant view of green mounds and unspoiled valleys with very fewer concrete structures to exist and it was little hazy when we arrive in morning. The uphill road has several tall trees to somewhere conceal the sky with certain long standing in history.
Servarayan temple
The Servarayan hill is noted for Servarayan temple, where the Lord Servarayan resides with his consort Kaveri inside a narrow dark cave. The cave is believed to extend up to 480 km leading Kaveri in Karnataka, which connects the Hill with River Cauvery. The cave is also believed to be explored by very few and some saints to travel fully; which is pitch dark with no ventilation and snakes movement after certain distance. The Tipu Sultan was also supposed to use this Bear cave as a hideout and secret route to escape at the time of war.
swing and roll
The Servarayan hill has couple of viewpoints to enjoy the green valley and to entertain children; there was a swing and giant wheel to cause a sense of floating in the air. I wish I was a child to enjoy the swing to the moving wind and little above the sky to wonder how cloud nine.

We spent there some time breathing the fresh air and feeling the cool atmosphere and having few spicy mango slices. It was a day went without hurry and we took our own time to relief ourselves from the strong toxic and carbon emission that we unveil to. We had a brief movement around the wide peak, watching down the valley and the far away bauxite mine that looks like a land on mars.
