OOTY HISTORY
The hills of the Nilgiris were never under dynastic rule. They remained dynastic in calm isolation behind the curtain of blue that envelopes 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 his tract in their time. infact, the British settled a claim by the ruler of kottayam by presenting him with a handsome pension when they acquired ooty for themselves.

John Sullivan, collector of Coimbatore , visited this place in 1819 after which he began to develop it .A path Known as ‘bridle path’ was constructed in 1823 ,Which remained the best orchards of peaches and plums and the terraced tea plantations that ooty is famous for are a legacy of the British ,who first introduced these crop here .so are the English faces; many of these Britons had settled here for good , having fallen in love with this little bit of England that they had discovered in India. Ooty without doubt , is still a ‘hill station’ and a very important tourist spot not to be missed by anyone who visits India. The “Queen of Hills”and headquarters of the Nilgiris district ,ooty still looks very much an English – country town .The hill town abounds in British buildings and British names – St Stephen’s church bears the name of governor Stephen Rumbold Lushington as does the lushington School. The Lawrence School and Breeks memorial School too are named after Britons of another age. Lady canning’s seat,Lamb’s Rock ,Dolphin’s Nose ,Club Hill and Elk Hill are all undoubtedly British sounding and the scenery Viewed from these points are decidedly English too;tall pines, conifers and eucalyptus stand in proud profusion beside Emerald-green lakes and red-tiled cottages with lush green lawns and rose gardens all official attempts of the tamil nadu government to get people to call ooty by the tamil name ‘Udagamandalam’ have failed,and ootcamund continues to be , as the British called it ,’ooty’ to all.

Route from the combatore side to the hills until 1830 -1832 when the first Coonoor Ghat was laid on .mr Sullivan built the stone house in1822, Which was to be his home for many years to come. Between the years 1821 and 1824 a number of new track were laid. He also enclosed the valley near bishopdown to enable him to conduct agricultural and horticultural experiment.
The Government plan of utilising ooty as a sanatorium further gained impetus in 1826 and roads were built around the settlement .soon the settlement expanded .shops were opened by some Bombay parsis, the church missionary society started a School for Europeans (1832) and Willian Rumbold started construction of his house that later became a hotel (1831).The Coonoor Ghat Had also led to the establishment of the coonoor settlement .the period during which Stephen Rumbold lushington was the governor saw a lot developments happening in the Nilgiris By 1837 ,coffee estates were established for the first time here .in 1860 the plateau west of the pykara ,the kundahs ,and the low country to the North of the plateau were annexed to Coimbatore district ,in 1868 the Nilgiris was separated from Coimbatore and placed under a commissioner and an assistant who had an assistant who had combined revenue criminal and civil jurisdiction further annexation 1873 and 1877 resulted in the Ochterlony valley and the southeast wayanad being added to the district .large areas had been planted with tea ,coffee and cinchon and the district was now the official summer resort of the Government .Due to this fact it was put on the same footing with the other district ,becoming a collectorate in 1882.

British officials and civilian had generally always hankered for their home country and the English climate. So when ooty was discovered it was a dream come true for the British , who had longed for the British ,who had longed for some place exactly like ‘home’ in india .many new buildings came up and there was no stopping the flow of immigigrants .indian maharajahs followed the English nobility and palaces vied for a place alongside British cottages

Lavish parties became the order of the day: soon social life was a whirlof fun and frolics : of hill stations.
