Rangaswamy Peak and Pillar lies twenty kilometers from Kotagiri town. Sacred to the Irulas (a tribe), the height of the peak is 5855 feet and can be seen clearly from the plains. Legend says that God Rangaswamy who lived in Karamadai, quarreled with his wife and came to live here alone. There are two shrines there which are dedicated to God Rangaswamy. Not far from Arakadu Village below the peak are two footprints on the rock- thought to be proof of the legend. North / West of the peak is Rangaswamy pillar, a huge extraordinary isolated detached rock rising in solitary grandeur to a height of about 400 ft.
