WelcomHeritage Fernhills Royal Palace spread over 50 acres of state with sprawling Greenwood, was the residence of quondam king of Mysore. Built in 1844, the palace resembles a Swiss chalet, and is superbly finished with Burmese teak and features a magnificent ballroom with a high vaulted ornamental Papier-mâché ceiling. The lobby of the palace has beautiful artifacts and handmade paintings of all the yesteryear rulers. Interestingly, all the rooms of the palace are addressed as suites due to its opulence and grandeur. Standing against the beautiful Nilgiri Hills, enveloped with the tea gardens and cardamom plantation, the palace was once stamping ground for the British elites. To escape the scorching summers of South India, high rank Britishers undertook Fernhills as their retreat. This quaint scenery of Ooty was widely enjoyed by the Indian and British nonpareils. It also once served as the earliest club hotels during the times of British Raj. Although India is free from the shackles of colonialism, Ooty has still preserved its ethereal beauty with a whisper of charming English influence. The majestic “Queen of Hills” is one of the most popular tourist destinations of India. With the wide expanse of hills and serenity, tourists visit Ooty for either a family vacation, romantic getaway or simply a weekend of relaxation, there’s something for everyone. Submitting to the mesmerising beauty of the Nilgiri Mountains whilst sipping freshly brewed tea or exploring the bustling town or simply riding the the Nilgiri Toy train, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ooty will win you over. Even after two-centuries of its existence WelcomHeritage Fernhills Royal still entices its guests with beauty, heritage, history, and glamour.
