Name : Kailasagiri
Location : Kailasagiri, the charming hillock on the seafront , is located at an altitude of 130 mts. above sea level. Sprawled over an area of 350 acres, it is one of the most attractive tourist spot with an enchanting view of the sea, beaches, lush green forests and the bustling city.
Deity : The 40 feet tall magnificent Shiva-Parvathi idol atop the Kailasagiri hill, with lighted mountains in front are worth seeing. The major attractions here are the Shanku Chakra Naama which symbolizes the image of Lord Vishnu in its pristine form, floral clock, titanic view point, jungle trails, manicured lawns and flower beds, art gallery, children play park etc. The entire area is illuminated and presents a fantastic sight when viewed in the night from any part of the city. The ropeway that starts from the foot hill (Appughar) to the picturesque Kailasagiri is an added attraction.
Kailasagiri is a gliders paradise with excellent gliding facilities and the gliding point provides ample opportunities to test the gliding skills of the gliders.
