In the colonial history of tropical India the British, who ran the government, had to bear with tough summer heat, dust and humidity and this made them uncomfortable and feel fatigued, Being accustomed, as they were, to cool and congenial weather they looked for cool places on high hills that would be equal to the English weather. They did not have to sweat it out like sweat-hogs for a few months in the scorching sun on the plains. Their intense search for hilly places to cool off in the summer retreat bore them fruits. Invariably most of the hill stations in the Himalayas in North India, and Eastern Ghat and western Ghat mountains in south India were discovered and developed by the adventurous British . Coonoor was one of three Hill stations established by the British Raj in the Nilgiri Hills (1850 meters (6070 feet) above sea level). They also built a summer Bungalow for the governor in Ooty to relax during the summer season.
